Aquitaine Bike says it rents bikes, but this is a huge understatement. On our tour in October 2015, we got so much more--a history of the region, the most well-planned and easy to follow routes, and higher quality (and equipped bikes) than we have had on several other self-guided bike tours. Add this to gorgeous scenery, picturesque villages, and fascinating... More

My husband and I have recently returned from 4 weeks cycling in France. Included in this was 8 days of cycling the extended Classic Cycle with Aquitaine Bike Hire. Robert was just a pleasure to know and deal with. Nothing was too much trouble. His knowledge of the area was so interesting and greatly enhanced our experience in the Dordogne... More

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

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
