Set up a Cycle Hire Service

A cycle hire service would provide a great alternative for tourists to explore the local area without spending a fortune on petrol or searching all day for a parking space.

Set up a cycle hire service by purchasing a range of cycles suitable for any age and gender. You could quickly establish a successful cycle hire service.

You can pick up excellent bicycles at incredibly low prices at government auctions - you'll need around 10-20 bikes to get this small business venture on the move.

If possible, locate your business near a campsite, caravan park or hotel to attract custom. Advertise in the bar and entertainment lounge and leave flyers under the windscreens of vehicle.

You could leave information in cycle shops and even in city car parks (especially if they are full and turning vehicles away). Your service will also appeal to environmentalists, so peddle your business in the kind of places they frequent.
