Great Bike, Excellent Service
Hired the Cannondale CAAD12 bikes from VeloRoo, great bikes that arrived spotless and ran faultlessly. Delivery service was also faultless, on time and all the paperwork completed efficiently by friendly owners Steve and Julia.
After Steve found out I had an old steely back home, when he came back to pick up the bikes he brought his own very special steely to show me - its a beauty - ask him about it, he's only too happy to share!
We will be using VeloRoo again, I'm certain of this.September 2019
Good bike and great friendly service
I rented a bike this week from Steve and Julia/ VeloRoo which is my second year doing so. They provide a great service in this region for cyclists including delivery of the bike. It was a good road bike and in great order. The cycling territory here is great. I can recommend VeloRoo highly, and will be back. August 2019
Bike hire par excellence. Steve and Julia do a remarkable job. From the very first inquiry throughout the whole month that I rode their bike it has been sensational - the beautiful environs, the impeccable service and care, the tour guiding which introduced me to one new area after the other coupled with super bike tips. This is the best bike hire experience I have ever had and have been doing this annually for seven years now. Vive la VeloRooMay 2017
