OUR BIKES

When you travel with Great Bike Tours, we'll offer you great bikes and great service, all included in the price of your tour.

To ensure that you are always super comfortable on your bike tour, we now offer you four types of bike to choose from, including e-bikes. And even better, many of our bikes are brand new 2018 models.

Our trained bike tour leaders will expertly fit you to a bike, adjust your helmet for you, and send you safely on your way. And while you are off having worldly adventures on your bike, one of our trusty bike tour guides will be on their bike somewhere behind you. They are looking after their flock of cyclists, trying to account for them all, and ensuring that each and every one of them is having a safe and fun bike ride.

What does your bike come with?

  • Bike rental is included in the price of the tour, including e-bikes (except New Zealand)
  • Complimentary use of a new helmet (Giro or Bell) with sun visor
  • Your choice of pedal type (flat or half cage), or bring your own for a more personalized fit
  • Rear pack which attaches to the rear rack. Useful for carrying personal items such as wallet, camera, rain jacket, snacks, etc. Comes with shoulder strap, and reflective triangle for safety
  • Combination lock

Full van support throughout the week

Most of our tours will have two vans supporting you throughout the week. From the minute we first meet you on Day 1, the vans are at your service 24/7. They are yours to enjoy as you please: ride in it, sleep in it, eat in it, see the sights from it.
