My wife & I have done several long distance European rides on our own bikes over the years, but with only a week to tour we decided to rent. Prior to our trip, Robert was both prompt and helpful in answering questions and making suggestions. Upon delivering our bikes he spent a lot of time with us adjusting and going... More

Loved biking in France! Aquitaine Bikes and Robert were the perfect way to go. He took the time to fit the bikes to us... bikes were perfect. He took the time to highlight the routes & loops for us on the maps... great loops! Robert's suggested rides even had the direction marked so we would have the best downhills in... More

Our biking experience in the Dordogne was fantastic, thanks to Robert. The bikes were great, and Robert took the time to custom-design several routes for us, and point out the best attractions (caves, castles, villages, etc.) to visit, including giving us details on getting tickets, and when to leave our home base to get there on time. We travelled 402... More

Cycling in Dordogne makes you happy! This is a perfect way to do a cycle tour of beautiful Dordogne. I would highly recommend Bike Aquitaine. We have done cycle touring before independently but this was great coming form overseas without our bikes. Excellent bikes provided, luggage transfers work perfectly, Robert is responsive and helpful and gave was good to have... More

Robert provided excellent bikes, and more importantly, wonderful suggestions on routes, trips, and places to see. We had a great trip and the bikes were perfect. He was always available to help if we needed, but everything worked out perfectly - rain and shine! I strongly recommend you use Robert for your bikes and worry not!! Paul Collins MD

We discovered Aquitaine Bike after an internet search of companies that would rent bikes and provide routes for a self-guided tour of the Dordogne region. After contacting Robert Owensmith, the owner, it was evident that this was a company with experience. We decided that we would cycle out of 2 hotels-proposed by Robert- so that we could experience a number... More

My husband and I are not new to self-guided cycling in Europe. However, this was our first adventure with our children (ages 8 and 5) along for the adventure. We decided to rent a farmhouse for 4 weeks and bring along our nanny so that we could ride our bikes during the day. My online research implied the Dordogne Region... More

From the very first email, Robert made it easy. We were two couples, wanting to do road biking. Our bikes were ideal and the routes Robert supplied were excellent and easy to follow. Equally important, was the fact we had no idea where to stay as we have never visited the area. Again we were glad we listened to Robert... More

Using Aquitaine Bike to explore the Dordogne region proved to be a stroke of genius! Robert supplied my wife and I with two quality Trek bikes for our 10 days of cycling. He not only delivered the bikes personally to our B and B in Belves, but spent an hour with us going over suggested routes, answering our many questions,... More

This was a long held dream of ours to ride for a week in France. Robert was very helpful with his answers to many many questions in the months leading up to our trip. He provided us with good quality bikes and seamless luggage transfers. He was always available for any assistance we needed during our ride through this beautiful... More
