Hired bikes for all the family... Ness E'Bikes provided maps and instructions to make sure we made the best of the time we had. Also, the guy who helped us is probably the most cheerful and enthusiastic person in Scotland! :)

Hi Kimberly, our smallest bike has 20" wheels. This is the link to the exact one we have - the exact bike is the Orbea MX 20 Dirt Kids bike. Please have a look and hopefully it suits! Many thanks, Ross.
