Road Bikes for our Loire Valley Cycle Tours

November 27, 2017

Road Bikes for our Cycle Tours are now a hire option for the 2018 cycling season.  We’ve added the Orbea Avant to our fleet, which can be rented as an upgrade on our cycle breaks and tours.

Availability is limited, so it will be early bookers that have more of a chance of bagging one.

The Avant has carbon forks, Shimano Tiagra group-set and rides on Kenda Kriterium 700×25 tyres.

We’ve specified the bikes with flat adjustable handle-bars so we can make adjustments for indiviual riders more easily than we could with drop handlebars.  The riding we did in Rhodes recently just confirmed our thinking – the road bikes there were lovely, but I just couldn’t get comfortable!

Ali and I have been testing the bikes through 2017 and have been really impressed and surprised by the number of people who have flagged us down to either admire them or ask us where we got them from.

Covering the ground more quickly has also enabled us to begin adding longer Loire Valley bike routes to our catalogue – I’ll talk more about these in a later blog post.

As normal, we’ll be happy to fit your pedals to these bikes and any other gadgets you can’t do without!

Happy Cycling!
