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

We were fortunate to have discovered the best bike rental anywhere - Aquitaine Bike! Robert really cared about details: excellent bikes; quiet routes with maps; personalizing the trip; hospitable service; reliable bike drop off and pick up; good communication; information about the local history; good recommendations for accommodation; service beyond the call of duty (eg. helped us out during a...

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

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
