What we offer:

A unique Pino rental service: we offer a unique on-demand rental service designed to make your life easy and to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible. We deliver your Pino(s) wherever you want in France and can even collect you directly at your hotel or arrival points in the country (Paris or regional airports, railway stations) and drop you on your cycling itinerary of choice directly. Should you need any assistance during your stay, we'll be there to help. And once your holiday is finished, we'll come to collect the bike(s) wherever you are and bring you back to your airport or the closest railway station. Forget the hassle of logistics, just make the best of your holiday and enjoy!

Side offerings: some of our clients are keen to sleep in campsites, but do not have the necessary cycle trekking /camping gear or do not want to take it on a plane. On top of the Pino themselves, we therefore rent 1) Ortlieb© waterproof panniers and trekking bags, and 2) for those who want to camp, a complete camping kit (quality backpacking tent, sleeping pads, sleeping bags, stove, cookware, dinnerware, and the ultimate comfort in bikepacking, lightweight foldable chairs). In addition, our clients have the option to rent a cell phone which runs on the French telecom network and which is fitted with all the apps to stay in touch and communicate (Skype, WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest) as well as the GPS course to follow. Just come with your clothes and we'll provide the rest!

Top-quality tandem bikes: our Pinos are fitted with all the necessary accessories and equipments and are very regularly serviced. We have standard Pino versions and e-Pinos (Pinos fitted with the Shimano STEPS technology) to cater for all client needs.

Quality advice prior to your holiday: we are experienced long-distance cyclists and have spent most of our holidays over the last 15 years riding the long-distance cycling itineraries of France, usually with kids. If you have any question regarding cycling itineraries in France or cycle trekking in France, don't hesitate to ask, we're there to help and share our knowledge and experience.

We pride ourselves to have 100% of our past clients who recommend our service to their friends and family. Most of our clients return to us every year and some of them rent from us every holiday break.
