 Problems whilst hiring...

Who is responsible for the bikes if they are damaged or stolen?
You are, and you sign for that on the contract when the bikes are delivered to you. You also need to tell us right away if the bike is damaged.

What about locks?
We provide bike locks free of charge.
We suggest: On the road keep 2 eyes on the bike - this is the best protection and at your hotel or rental house take the bike inside to your room.
Bike storage rooms at hotels we recommend only, if they offer individual locker systems, videocameras or similar security systems.

What if I get a puncture?
This happens occasionally, and you would be unlucky. You must not ride on a flat tire this damages the wheel.
All bikes are fitted with a spare tube, puncture repair kit, tyre levers and a mini pump for every group.
