Our Rental Bikes

Our fleet of rental bikes are mostly made up from the Genesis Core range, these are great hardtail trail bikes with RockShox fork, Shimano gears and hydraulic brakes. Meticulously maintained, all our bikes are supplied with helmets, backpack, mini-tool, puncture repair kit and locks. The bikes are fitted with flat pedals as standard but we offer SPD’s as an option just let us know your preference at the time of booking.

Since 2014 we have been running Slime smart tube self-healing inner tubes with great effect and punctures are virtually a thing of the past although this isn’t 100% guaranteed, which means more time enjoying our stunning scenery less time getting your hands dirty fixing punctures.

Bikes are delivered free of charge within 10 kms of Obidos, outside of this area incurs a small charge.
