We are right in the centre of town, opposite the Crazy Golf and the flagpole, so it is easy to find us and we are open seven days a week. Winter hours :- 10 am - 5pm Thursday to Monday inclusive.
Just call in and hire any of our wide range of bikes to suit all ages and abilities. From one hour at only £2.60 to a full day for £5.40.

Our hire fleet of over 400 bikes is maintained to a very high standard and bikes are updated regularly. All are fitted with 'gel' saddles to provide maximum comfort.
Often referred to as the "Bicycle Island" as there are so many bikes of all shapes and sizes available for hire. The Isle of Cumbrae is a cyclist's paradise. The road around the island is almost completely flat and an easy route for all the family. As well as several cafes in the town of Millport, Fintry Bay Tearoom on the west side of the Island provides the perfect refreshment stop.
Mapes of Millport has been serving the Island of Cumbrae since 1946. We have an extensive fleet of bicycles, tricycles, tandems, quadricycles, and tag alongs, kiddicabs and even a dog carrier - for hire by the hour, day or week or more. We also sell new bicycles and service existing ones. Our Toy Shop carries an extensive range of toys and games from leading manufacturers such as Airfix, Bruder, Fisher Price, Lego and Crayola. Fishing tackle is also available to be purchased.
