Arragons Cycle Hire – offering Cycle Hire from the beautiful surroundings of Lowther Castle

Arragons Cycle Centre is run by Phil & Sarah with the help of a dedicated team of Sales Staff and Cycle Technicians.  The business has been in the family for 50 years, with Sarah’s parents owning the shop previously.  Because of this history, we have long standing great relations with our suppliers, who are the industries finest.

We are delighted to announce that we are now offering Cycle Hire from the beautiful surroundings of Lowther Castle. The venture coincides with the launch on the Lowther Estate of a network of dedicated cycling and walking trails. This will enable visitors, particularly families, to enjoy the beauty and unspoilt terrain of the Lowther Estate in Cumbria.

Hand in hand with this network comes the launch of Arragons Cycle Hire at Lowther Castle – an enterprise that is being managed and run in tandem with our family run store in Penrith. Under this new venture, visitors to the castle will be able to hire a range of bikes, from trail bikes (Scott Aspect) or, for junior riders, superlight mountain bikes (Saracen Mantra) to a selection of pedal assist electric bikes (Saracen Juiced, Ridgeback X3) which are ideal for anyone who cannot face the more uphill stretches of the estate.


Please note that after hiring bikes and exploring the trails, you can enjoy 10% off admission to the Castle & Gardens (including the adventure playground) on production of your bike-hire receipt.
