Absolutely fantastic service! Would suggest if visiting this area look and need a cycle look no further than Robert and Aquitaine Bikes. The cycles are top notch - well serviced and Robert thinks of every eventuality providing helmets, pumps, tubes, tyres and a detailed map of routes that he recommends which are appropriate to your standard of cycling!! He is... More

Rented 8 bikes with Robert in 2010 while vacationing in Dordogne and he was so accommodating that we are renting again this year. We have done all of our booking by mail from Ca and he always was on top of it responding within a day or two! Bikes are in great shape and his price are competitive. He also... More

My husband and I rented hybrid bikes from Robert and followed his extended classic Dordogne route. We have cycled throughout Europe and this is our favourite cycle yet! The bikes performed perfectly, the route notes completely accurate and all Robert's suggestions as to interesting places and sites to visit were great. We also followed his suggestions for hotels in each... More

We have hired bikes from Robert twice now and would have no problem recommending him to others. His service is second to none, his knowledge of the area is incredible, without doubt a fabulous fella who obviously loves the Dordogne area and is proud to present to visitors, highlighting the best routes for ease of cycling, views and history.The bikes...

This cycle trip was the highlight of our European trip made by the excellence of the whole cycling experience including bikes, itineraries and equipment. The planning by Robert was faultless from beginning to end. His knowledge of the area including many wonderful sights and fantastic scenery made each day a delight. The bikes were fantastic, my husband's bike was brand... More

I rented a Lapierre road bike (flex frame with carbon forks) for my stay in the Dordogne so I could continue my bike training in some of the best cycling countryside that France has to offer without having to take my own road bike with me. The bike was high quality and had been well maintained. It was delivered on... More

Rented both touring and road bikes from Aquitaine for 2 weeks of family vacation in the Dordogne. The whole experience with the owner, Robert Owensmith, couldn't have been more pleasurable and efficient. Email communication to set up the booking went smoothly and the bikes were delivered to our house exactly as scheduled. All the bikes were properly sized, in excellent... More

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
