Scilly Cycle Business up for Sale

St Mary’s Bike Hire is for sale and, if sold, will see the business leave the family that has been operating it since 1961.

The owner, Sean Lewis, wants to move to Cornwall for personal reasons and he says he hopes a buyer can be found for the business, started by his parents.

It was originally called Buccabu after their home and business address on The Strand although when the family moved to Chuch Road, the name went with them.

Sean has 170 bikes including one tandem. Originally there were 7 tandems but he says the idea of the bicycle ride for two seems to have peeked in the 80s.
