We pride ourselves on supplying quality, well maintained bikes including hybrid bikes, trekking bikes, child bikes and tandems. Child seats, tag-alongs and buggies are also available for attaching to adult bikes. We can cater for all the cycling needs of the family, with bikes and equipment suitable for all ages from 6 months upwards.
Bicycle hire is by prior booking only, together with the payment of a deposit of 15% of the total cost to reserve the bikes. There is a minimum hire period of three days. We are a small company offering a personal service and do not hold a large number of bicycles, so recommend reserving bikes in advance.
When you hire a bike from us, we can also provide helmets, puncture repair kits, tyre inflators and padlocks at no extra cost.
Lightweight tents (2kg), sleeping bags and sleeping mats can be hired from us to carry on your bikes if you would like the option of camping.
Maps of the region can also be hired from us, which have been published specifically for the use of cyclists. (IGN Scale 1:100000).
There are several long distance traffic-free cycle trails in the region which have been converted from disused railway lines, known as 'voies vertes' in French, offering a network of traffic-free and easy cycling for all the family.
There is one of these waymarked routes (voie verte - V2) which follows the towpath of the Ille-et-Rance canal from Rennes to Treverien. This ride can be extended beyond Treverien via the beautiful mediaeval town of Dinan to the coast at Dinard and St Malo. Three days is ideal for comfortably cycling this route and we can, for example, deliver bikes to Rennes and then pick them up in St Malo. We can offer information about this popular route, including details of accommodation en route.
Bicycles can be transported free of charge on most trains in Brittany and Normandy, and by combining cycling with travel by train can enable you to extend your cycling tour, thereby seeing more of the region. The train stations nearest to where we are based are in Pontorson, Avranches, Dol-de-Bretagne, Granville, Combourg, St Malo, Dinan, Vire, Montreuil-sur-Ille and Rennes.
We supply a range of good quality bicycles and equipment designed specifically for touring and leisure use. They are all well equiped and fitted with Shimano 21 speed gears and SRAM 24 speed gears. Please contact us for full specifications and photographs.
We do not supply road bikes, mountain bikes or e-bikes for hire.
Whether you are planning on buying your first tandem or just fancy a go on one, we can teach you the basics of riding a tandem safely, from starting off to stopping correctly. This way you will get the most out of the experience and will be riding like experts in no time. As tandem riders ourselves, we can also advise you on such things as what features to look for when buying a bike, ongoing care and maintenance, and information on tandem groups and resources.
Hire a tandem from us and come and experience the enjoyment of cycling on a 'bicycle made for two', either for a short break or longer. We can help you to choose and book your accommodation, and then deliver the bike to you.
We have a kiddy crank kit available, which we are happy to fit for any young stokers, so that all the family can enjoy the pleasures of tandeming.
