Tour de France Alpe d’Huez Bike Rental 2018

1 Jun

With most of our bikes hired over the 19th-20th July you may think that is not possible to hire a bike over the very busy Tour de France period.

There are however a few options.

  1. Each year bikes are returned early or are not picked up at all so if you are in the area you can pop in and see what is available. Both our mechanics will be working full time to make bikes available for rent as soon as they are returned from hire. You may therefore have a few hours to hit Alpe d’Huez in an afternoon for example.
  2. There is more availability before the key dates so for example you can hire bikes for 3 days on the 15th-17 th July and tackle the local climbs before we get really busy.
  3. Send us an email and we can come up with a plan on how to maximise your bike hire. You may need to swap bikes because of booking patterns but you will be able to get some riding in.
