BIKES & EQUIPMENT.
On the afternoon of arrival you'll be fitted and acquainted with your bike & equipment - so you can make the most of your cycling time. You'll be riding one of our quality Lapierre and Trek hybrid bikes. We use hybrids as they have the slightly more upright riding position of a mountain bike, and so are more comfortable to ride than a road bike. This riding position, combined with tyres that are thicker than on a road bike, gives you increased stability & safety on the road.
The bike's components are Shimano - easy to use, tough and reliable! Plus the 24 gears available will make any hills a little easier! All of the above mean you should be comfortable on your bike whilst getting the most from your efforts!
Electric assistance bikes are also now available for hire. Electric bikes are great for giving less
able bikers, or less enthusiastic ones, an authentic taste of the beautiful Luberon by bike. By selecting the amount of assistance you require you get
to manage the level of effort you give. The bikes are easy to ride, highly autonomous with a minimum range of 60kms to a max of 100kms. With all the equipment you could need, and with one of our new Garmin GPS you are set for an easy carefree tour.
Electric bikes can be hired at an additional 25 euros per night, please contact us for details.
We will also supply you with the following bike equipment:
- A Garmin GPS - For easy to use navigation...
- A bike helmet - Good quality, light-weight and comfortable.
- An under saddle bag containing a puncture repair kit, tools and a spare inner tube. A light weight pump is also attached to the frame.
- Rear pannier bags are also available if you would like them fitted.
- A water bottle - yours to keep.
- A good quality combination lock, easily transportable as it attaches to your bike when not being used.
Supplying you with a bike & equipment means of course that you don't have the trouble and expense of having to transport your bike to the South of France. If, however, you want to bring your own bike that's no problem, if you could just let us know at the time of booking.
