Frequently asked questions
What is provided with my Road Bike?
Road bike rental includes a saddlebag with tyre levers & spare tube, pump fitted to the bike and souvenir water bottle. Accessories such as helmet, pedals and Garmin are available for hire.
Our road bikes do not come with pedals. (we can fit flat pedals for you free of charge if you wish) We have some pedals available for hire (Look, SPD road & SPD offroad) and must be pre-booked. Otherwise we recommend you bring your own pedals.
And a handy tip – don’t leave it until the night before you fly out to try to remove your pedals, depending on how long they have been on your bike, they may be tight to remove!
Saddle / Seat
We highly recommend bringing your own saddle if you intend to do some distances, as your saddle can be a very personal choice (generally they are light weight and small to pack). We will happily fit this for you when we deliver your bike. Otherwise all of our bikes come with the standard factory supplied saddle.
