Provence cycling tours - Our new, aluminium, quality Trek hybrid bikes.

On the afternoon of arrival you'll be fitted and acquainted with your bike & equipment - so you can get the best from your time cycling in Provence. You'll be riding one of our new, quality Trek FX 3 hybrid bikes, with light, aluminium frames and carbon fibre forks. We use hybrids as they have the slightly more upright riding position of a mountain bike, and 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.

We also use bar ends on all of our hybrids. When biking in this position, the bar ends give you more of a low profile position for when you want to go fast, and a second position on the bike to help stop bike fatigue. They also make getting out of the saddle and climbing easy and effective.

The bike's components are mostly Shimano - easy to use, tough and reliable! Plus the 27 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!

Our bikes have standard pedals, but we can supply, if you wish, Shimano SPD automatic pedals. We stock the mountain bike variety SPD M520s & M540s (note we do not use the road bike SL variety). We use these pedals as the cleats are recessed into the bike shoes, thus making it very easy to walk when off the bike visiting, whilst getting the benefit of auto pedals.

Cycling in Provence - If you want a little extra help we also rent excellent 
		ebikes - Scotts or Giants.

Electric assistance bikes are also available for hire, we use either quality Scott or Giant bikes. Ebikes are great for giving less able bikers, or just 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 max range of up to 100kms.
Electric bikes can be hired at an additional €168 for your tour - please contact us for details.
With all the equipment you could need, and with one of our new Garmin GPS you are set for an easy, carefree tour.

Road bikes are also available for hire - usually Cannondale Synapse carbons, for an additional €168 for your tour - please contact us for details.
