In line with the latest government guidance, we've put in place further measures in England to help customers practice social distancing. This includes limiting the available seats on buses.
Face coverings are compulsory when using public transport in England and Scotland. In Wales you must wear a 3 layer face covering on public transport and put it on before travelling unless you are exempt. It is also now compulsory to wear face coverings when using indoor public transport hubs in England only.
The safety of our customers and employees is our priority, so please avoid busy times, use contactless payment and take your litter with you. For up to date information see our Coronavirus page

Saddles & Paddles has been on Exeter Quay for around 25 years and over this time, has built up a strong reputation as the place to go for bike hire or canoe hire. The business is extremely popular with both tourists and local residents, and our position directly on both the canal and the traffic free Exe Estuary Trail cycle route, makes us an ideal location for the hire of bikes and boats.
Saddles & Paddles is a unique independent business offering a great day out for those that love a little adventure and the great outdoors. Hire a bike to pedal from the city to the seaside, or hire a boat and paddle to the pub! We offer easy, relaxing, outdoor fun for all ages. Choose from bikes, canoes, kayaks or Stand Up Paddleboards to explore the area.
Your journey will start right from our doorstep, whether it’s on the calm canal waters, or the traffic-free, picturesque cycle routes to explore the Exe Estuary.
