Our Bikes

‘At Ride and Seek we understand the importance of a good bike beneath you.’ 

We are always happy to facilitate you bringing your own bike. However, we appreciate that for convenience this is not always possible so we’ve endeavored to give you the option of high-end bike hire. Our recommendation for the tours we run in Europe is titanium bikes that make up the fleet at our base in Provence, France.

We have two brands available – Van Nicholas and Lynskey. We can always source other brands but these are generally available at a premium as we need to outsource them. We have no hesitation in recommending our titanium fleet bikes as the ideal steed for our tours.

With regards to e-road bikes, which have become increasingly popular, we also have these available in our European fleet. Subject to availability we have Cannondale, Merida, and Specialized e-road bikes available. The e-bike featured below is the Cannondale Super 6 Neo which is one of a number of options in the fleet.

For bike rental outside of Europe, our bike rental options are a little more ad-hoc but generally correspond to the same pricing model as below. We use local suppliers in countries where we can’t deliver our fleet bikes and seek out bikes with a similar spec to what we offer in Europe.

For the specs of our rental bikes and pricing see below.
