Which kind of bike for your 2020 Côte d’Azur cycling adventure?
The days are short at this time of year and we are currently going through every corner of our bikes to make them ready for a new season. You are probably already thinking about what cycling adventure you are wishing for the new year?
Quick road bike tours, going longer or higher than you ever thought you could by e-bike, or perhaps trying out a light weight hybrid bike that can give you a new dimension to cycling?
In BikeTrip we specialize in providing you with (almost) all kinds of bikes that you need to follow your cycling dream in Southern France. Whether you will cruise along a coast or climb some mountains, alone or in a group, we are happy to advise you and find the right fit.
Every day we supply road bikes to visitors that come to discover the mountains in the back country by bike. We know that cyclists value a good bike. We have BMC bikes that suit any taste and wallet in high quality aluminium and carbon frames. You can get Shimano 105 – Ultegra Di2 gearing and pedals that fit your shoes. Bring your own and we will help you set them on. Our mechanics maintain the bikes after each time they have been in use. When renting with us you get a machine kept with care!
The difference between a city and a touring bike
For you who just want to circle around town or cycle along the promenade for a few hours a standard city bike is a good choice. A helmet is always included in the bike rental, we have sizes for children and adults (and we clean the helmets after each use). Need a small bike bag or a lock? No problem; just ask and we will provide them for you.
For those of you who want to challenge a hill or two we recommend picking a touring bike. The bikes are easy to use, solid, comfortable and have 21 gears that give you small gears to beat an uphill and big gears to push some speed.
The BMC Alpen Challenge is the Rolls Royce in our bike park for leisure rides. The light aluminium frame with a Shimano 105 gearing system and disc brakes make you fly up the hills for a fun day out on the bike. You can easily ride the Col d’Eze on the Alpen Challenge. Just ask, and we will change the pedals if you want to use your click-in shoes. The BMC Alpen Challenge comes in MTB standard as well.
Last, but not least, is the e-bike
Our e-bikes are strong. With a full battery you can easily cover long distances in a day by these sofa cycles. Our models are easy to handle and we always make sure to give you a good instruction before you start. They run in several modes – you can pedal with no battery on or put on the turbo: You will never ask for a Vespa again.
Please get in touch to get our advice for which bike that will be the right one for you! We have many years of experience in guiding our cycling clients to the bike of their dream for the day.
If you need a delivery or come in a group, don’t wait to ask. We are dedicated to finding a solution for you.
BikeTrip wishes you a merry month full of Christmas’ dreaming of bike tours.
