We book the flights and then read the small print about the extra baggage. Do we really want to pull our bike apart and then reassemble it when we arrive? What if we just had a great new model bike waiting for us?
Jean-Michel and his team at France Bike Hire are Verve’s official Bike Hire Partners for Europe. We have worked closely with them all for the last three years on the Haute Route and at their home base at the foot of Mt Ventoux. The cycling heritage runs deep in this company and the business acumen means that they are respected all over Europe and by their customers wherever they come from. They are partners also with ASO for the Etape and supply bikes for many companies at their events.
We have seen them go the extra mile, when someone has crashed their own bike and they delivered a rental in impossible situations. The partnership also means that you can hire a bike fitted with an InfoCrank® if you really would like to test the InfoCrank® or just want to have real power numbers when you do your classic climbs.
If you want to hire a bike for any of our tours/camps, just mention it to us or directly to France Bike Rentals. They have depots all over France and many other key spots in Europe.
