Additional Notes:

  • Clip-In Pedals & Shoes: If you would like to clip in, please bring your PEDALS AND SHOES and your guides will install them for you. While we have extra pedals, it is always best to bring your own and know your full system works.
  • Helmets and Saddles: We recommend that riders bring their own helmets from home for a more comfortable fit. If you have a particular helmet/saddle at home that you're used to, we advise you consider taking it along for the ride.
  • Bike Lights: Your bike rental will come with front/back lights.

A Note For Frequent Bike Travelers:

Find yourself going on cycling holidays regularly? Get a step ahead and buy a spare set of pedals, saddle, and helmet. Maybe even shoes!

We have many guests who love cycling holidays and own a ready-to-go "travel pack" of these key items. They keep them packed together and ready to go whenever adventure calls! Best part? It saves you time from uninstalling and reinstalling these parts on your bike at home every time you travel!
