Cycling Holidays France - Cycle to Villandry

Loire Valley Hire Bikes

For some cycling holidays in France are about relaxing and soaking up the scenery without too much effort and for others it’s about recreating that ‘Tour de France’ feeling!  We have bikes that can satisfy both aims.  The hire of a standard Hybrid is included in our Discovery Tour and Short Break prices.

Hybrid Touring Bikes

We have two styles of touring hybrid, which provide relaxed gearing, a more upright cycling position,  plenty of adjustment and in a range of sizes for ladies and men.

Hybrid Bike Equipment

Our hybrid bike hire includes the following equipment:

  • Handlebar Bag or Panier
  • Rear bike rack
  • Bottle holder & Water Bottle
  • Odometer & Map Holder
  • Bike Lock
  • Helmet
  • Hi-viz Vest
  • Puncture repair equipment

Carbon Fork Road Bikes

New for 2018, we have a limited number of carbon forked, flat bar Orbea road bikes.  As standard they are fitted with flat pedals, so if you want to clip in, then please bring your own pedals, which we’ll be happy to fit.

Hire of the road bikes does incur a rental fee supplement and damage deposit – please ask us for further information.

Road Bike Equipment

Our road bike hire includes the following equipment:

  • Water Bottle
  • Bottle holder & Water Bottle
  • Bike Lock
  • Odometer & Map Holder
  • Flat Pedals
  • Helmet
  • Hi-viz Vest
  • Puncture repair equipment

Garmin GPS Hire

We provide you with brilliantly detailed paper maps and written instructions for all our routes.  Also new for 2018, we are able to rent a Garmin GPS unit, which is preloaded with our Loire Valley cycle routes – making navigation even easier.  Again, ask us for details.

Support and Extra Help

If you have hired your bike, then all through the week we ensure that it is in full working order and comfortable.

We are also happy to fit your own saddle, pedals or your GPS to our bikes for the duration of your cycling holiday – just let us know when you book so that we can have the bike ready to recieve your equipment when you arrive!

When you are out on the road we will assist you in the event of major technical failure,  but it really helps us if you are able to mend punctures with the equipment we provide.  If you can’t we will get out to you as soon as possible to change the tyre for you – but bear in mind you may be over 35kms away.

If you have brought your own bike, then you are more than welcome to use the bike stands and tools that we have available.
