On the bikes … ready, steady, go!
For all our bike routes we can provide high-quality rental bikes and additional equipment if requested. These bikes have been especially designed for our bike tours. They are comfortable, safe and sturdy bikes and therefore perfect to undertake tours of several days duration. We have tested numerous bikes and compared a lot of different components. Our current rental bike has been created after all these tests and meets not only our requirements but also those of our cyclists.
Our rental bikes are 21- gears touring bikes. The bikes and appending equipment (repair kit, pump, spare inner tube, wheel- lock, saddle bag,…) will be at your disposal in the arrival hotel. At the end of your bike tour you simply leave the rental bike at the last hotel, we take care of the return.
If you have you booked a tour with one of our partners there could occasionally be different bike models available for renting, but they will always meet our quality standards.
Of course each rented bike has an appropriate special equipment:
- A high- quality saddlebag by VAUDE (per bike):
This waterproof rear pannier has a roll closure that allows you to customize the size of the bag and seal it so that it’s watertight. Thanks to the symmetrical construction, it can be mounted on either the left or the right side.
- A VAUDE handlebar bag (per room)
This waterproof handlebar bag is ideal for storing everything you want to keep an eye on, and might need at a moment’s notice. Practical details: detachable map compartment, Klickfix attachment, and shoulder strap.
- Repair Kit (per room)
Kit with which you can make the most important repairs such as changing the inner tube
- Spare inner tube (per room)
- Pump (per room)
- Bicycle computer (per bike): easy-to –use bicycle computer which keeps track of average speed, distance, time
- Wheel-lock (per room)
Wearing a helmet is not mandatory but we highly recommend and advise to use one for your own safety. Especially children should never ride a bike without a helmet! If you do not own a bike helmet you can rent one from us.
