Sometimes bringing your own bike to The Alps isn’t the best plan. Don’t worry though because bike hire in the Alps is easy. You might be coming from the southern hemisphere and it’s too much hassle.
Maybe your own bike is broken. Possibly it’s just a bit old and worn out and you really want to enjoy your BikeVillage trip without worrying about it.
Or would you just like to ride a great bike for the week, without having the hassle of packing and transporting your bike and the extra cost of airline baggage.
Normally our partnership with Whyte bikes allows us to offer you bike hire in the Alps at much less than the going rate. Unfortunately 2023 isn’t the year to be buying bikes! We have still managed to keep a small range of enduro bikes for rental and they’re available at €350/week. If ever we’re all booked out we can also arrange bike hire through the local hire shops in the valley but it tends to cost closer to €490/week. That’s because this is how they make their living rather than us, who have always done it as more of a service.
What you need to know:
Cost: The cost is €350/week or €90/day for individual days.
Booking: Just fire us an email when you send your booking form and we’ll reserve the bike for you.
Small Print: We’ll take payment for the rental in advance. In the event of serious damage to the bike we won’t arse about charging excessive labour on broken parts. We will ask you to pay the basic cost of the replacement part. For example if you mangle a rear mech through a rear wheel then you’d just have to pay the mech and a few spokes rather than hours of labour on top. You will be responsible for the safe working of the bike during your trip. We’ll give it the once-over together at the start of your trip. From there on you can treat it like your own for the week. We will of course be on hand to help with set up, shock adjustment and so on.
