    The Lindisfarne Gospels (London, British Library Cotton MS Nero D.IV) is an illuminated manuscript gospel book produced around the year 700 in a monastery off the coast of Northumberland at
    Lindisfarne and which is now on display in the British Library in London.

    My friend Jennifer and I came from the States (Virginia and Florida) to see the Lindisfarne Gospels in Durham last week. We wanted to be able to cycle through some of the countryside during our few
    days in England, so our booking contact at the Durham Castle put us in touch with Martin at WoodnWheels and Durham City Cycle Hire. It was an early promise of the brilliance to come. It is not easy
    to rent cycles in America, and it was a warming welcome to see the county in fresh air and on one's own schedule.

    Martin was himself the very model of conscious courtesy. He divined our needs without our having to ask, made sagacious suggestions about which trails would best fit our needs and timings, received
    occasional Skype calls and answered clarifying emails. This all began a couple of weeks out from our arrival there, and he continued to guide us even after our arrival.

    To ease our way into Durham County and castle life, Martin dropped the bicycles off at the castle. They were sparkling white, foldable, completely serviceable bikes, outfitted with helmets and keyed
    locks, all within the set price. Wonderful! It was fun adjusting the seats and handlebars manually and taking a wheel around the city to get used to pedaling on the left side of the streets and
    boulevards—and trails.

    When finally we met Martin at the turn-in of the bikes, we found a gentle and kind and courteous man who was both intelligent and humorous (forgive my variant spellings). My one regret is that I
    can't take Martin and his ingenuity back to the States with me. We could use him! Our final gift from him was the direction to follow a scenic route to walk back to the Castle from Meadowfield, which
    made the six miles a larking expedition in which we met flowers and fruits and dogs and donkeys we'd never have encountered without him. Jennifer and I had a great experience with the bikes and with
    Martin and with the county of Durham. What a wonderland.

    My final note is this: we're going to recommend to our cycle shops in the States that a coalition of owners form an international association to share shop tips and trail maps and, best of all,
    encourage the rent-a-cyle idea to flourish across every continent. Well, maybe we'll accept Antarctica.

    I thought that was my final note. My final note, though, is a hearty recommendation that you rent a cycle from this wonderful man and see the lush and lovely Durham area. It's a place where thousands
    live the life that millions wish they could! Cheers! (I've learned to say that while raising a pint!)

    Best, Rand


I hired a bike for two days in June. so I'm writing this email.

I really enjoyed cycling with your bike. The cycling trail from your shop
to Durham that you told me was awesome as I could cycle in green all the
time! The bike was easy to ride even on muddy roads and it's got everything
I needed like key lock or pump. And thank you for the adjusting time for return even
though the shop was closed on that day.

But I only ride a bike on holiday time, so I don't want to keep it in my
house all the time. Therefore, it was good to know that I can actually hire
a bike in Durham area. I wish I could hire a bike in Durham City Centre or
anywhere closer to the city though.

And many students still don't know about your shop and service. I just
thought you could advertise more to students as some of them would be
interested in a bike hire like me.

At last, thank you for your kind instruction and everything although my
English was sometimes not good enough. And I'm sorry if any of my comments
sounds too bad or offensive. I just don't know how to say it properly. I
hope many people enjoy this great summer bike experience with your bike.

Many thanks,
