Onsite for road cycling we have both SwiftCarbon Attack road bikes with Ultegra components. Or for those guests who would prefer a more relaxed geometry and to be able to go on trails as well as the road we have Dawes aluminium hybrid bikes.
SwiftCarbon Attack road bikes have a compact crank set, 50 x 34. We have different saddles available including Sella Italia SMP saddles. Bike set up is included in every rental. We will take the time to make sure you are comfortable and happy with your set up.
For families we have the above bikes, plus children’s Worx road bikes and trail bikes for children. For little ones we have either a bike seat or a tow gator that can fit between the adult bike and children’s bikes, so if the younger ones get tired easily, you can tow them behind you. We have many family friendly routes and they have been tried and tested by our own children and many guest families over the years.
We also have basic mountain bikes for rent, a few have disc brakes.
All rentals include a bike helmet, spare inner tube, pump, repair kit and tools in a small bag. We also have smartphone bags for the front of the bike so you can view your smartphone while riding. We do also have garmins available for rent. But the new Smartphone apps (Strava) are so good and work on airplane mode, reducing battery usage. You just load the app and data via the hotels free wifi and then you are away, as the app uses the phone own inbuilt GPS system. Bike locks are available for the hybrid and mountain bikes. We do not recommend leaving the carbon road bikes anywhere even if you lock them up. A good pair of bolt cutters will allow a thief to steal an expensive bike in a few seconds. We can recommend many local cafes and restaurants were you can have your bikes close to you at all times to avoid problems.
Please book your rentals early to avoid disappointment. You can book by the day or by the week, but if you book for the week (discounted rate) you will be charged for the whole week, as we cannot rent the bike out to anyone else if you have reserved it. We are here onsite to help so if you have a problem with a bike please let us know as soon as you return for the day so we have a chance to fix it ready for the next morning.
