Welcome to Wood n Wheels. The Cycle Hire Centre and Shop for everything on two wheels and more!

The bicycle is the perfect means of getting around for anyone who wants to get fit. Whether it's a family outing in the countryside, a bike adventure across the Forest and moorland or just geting some promised training for the daily commute that you are aiming for, you'll find we stock the perfect bike and childs accessories for you and your family.


We're happy to see you've found your way to our website. Please drop by at the Cycle Hire Centre and store in Hamsterley Forest, Bishop Auckland, where we'll be happy to show you through the range and organise a bike fitting for you to make sure you get the most from your outdoor experience.


Wood n Wheels are the only licenced cycle hire centre in Hamsterley forest and we have been working with the Forestry Commission for the last 6 years improving the visitor experience within the forest, We offer a full range of cycles for all the family!


Hamsterley is the biggest forest in the North East and County Durham and the premier bike destination in the region. With over 5000 acres of forest to explore and over 33 miles of way marked trails. Whether its big downhill thrils in this purpose made centre, a fun filled ride on the skills training loop, or a quiet cycle with your kids, this forest has something for you to enjoy truly cycling for all-abilities.


Not too far from the cycle hire centre and shop you will find the main stream of the Bed Burn that leisurely meanders through the forest, it's quite possible to see Salmon leaping En route to there spawning grounds, or deeper into the forest in the quieter heart, you may on a warm day see Adders bathing in the sun or deer crossing the trails on open land where new trees have yet to gain maturity and obscure the view.


Or come on a misty early morning in spring and see the forest from a far vantage point, mist nestling in the lower ground and valleys or frost hanging in the trees on a winters day, these and more are just some of the mystical things to be seen in the forest and a bike is just the thing to allow you to cover more ground than on foot, allowing you to get the most out of this experience of a life time we know you will be back as you never get the same vista all year.


All cycle trails start by the information point opposite the Cycle Hire Centre and Shop, so cover more distance get into the more remote areas of the forest Hire a bike, discover more, experience more, enjoy more and find your full potential.
