I rent a 50cc scooter right after leaving the ferry. An employee gave me a very useful map with a suggested route to have a good overview of the island and some restaurant suggestions as well.
Then, I rode all day on all the winding mountain roads with my 50km/h pace, not being really bothered by the few cars that have the same speed limit as me.
Having a scooter allows to park and stop almost everythere and gives you a feeling of total freedom exploring the island.
I gave it back before my ferry departure and spent an awesome day for a good price.
Note: it could be a bit scary riding through the dark tunnel to Hvar but no worries, cars will wait calmly behind you and sometimes it seems tricky to ride on top of the hills when it is very windy. But take your time and relax and everything would be fine!

My girlfriend and I had a great time with Luca on our trip. We saw parts of the island we otherwise wouldn’t have seen and had a well earned, delicious lunch at a Konoba before heading back. In total the trip was about 5 hours and we covered 31km with frequent breaks for photo’s etc. I would highly recommend if you enjoy cycling and want to explore some of the island. I will definitely rebook when we revisit Hvar.

Massimo couldn’t have been more helpful. He was super flexible with arranging the bike pick up and return. The bike was fantastic too and really made the riding more enjoyable, even the hills! Massimo gave me some great advice on routes and even joined me for a couple of rides. I’d definitely recommend Hvar Life and would be keen to try the gravel and off road riding next time I’m here.

We rented ebikes from hvar.life and it was a good choice. Office is located right at the stari grad port, so we didnt waste much time looking for the place. Owner is an expert and recommended me ebikes instead of mtb and i am glad i listened. We had so much fun trailing from stari grad to hvar, going through beuatiful mountains and peaks with unbelievable beautiful view over sea. Was worried about battery capacity, but after 80km it still had 37 pct left, which would be enough for a detour to Jelsa. After this exciting adrenaline experience, i decied to buy ebike myself.

I wanted a solo bike tour because I know I tend to be a little slow, and needed to build mileage for a training ride for an upcoming race. Hvar life is not an ordinary bike shop, they're very athelete oriented (including Massimo himself) which is why I actually chose to come to Hvar (Fyi Hvar life is located in Starigard not Hvar Town) which honestly I would have chosen to stay if I had known before booking my hotel. Low key, less touristy and way more value than over priced Hvar Town. Massimo arranged a drop off and pick up for me without additional cost, and he's been a real rock star. Very helpful and patient.The weather was a blistering 35-38 degrees with little shade, and I hit the wall around 80k, mentally I was just not prepared to deal with the climbs in the hot weather, majorly frustrated. But he was just calm, patient and professional just continued riding at my pace and telling me a little bit more. Beautiful scenery. I don't normally like to repeat holiday destinations, but I would come back to Hvar, but just stay in Stari Gard or Jesla and go on another ride with Hvar Life! Beautiful Pinarellos in excellent condition. They provided water gels etc. I've done quite a number of international road bike tours, in Cape Town, Vegas, Thailand, Victoria (Canada) and Bali. And Hvar Life comes out close to the top. Thanks Massimo, very happy to clock close to 90k!

From the moment I walked into Hvar life bike shop I was made feel at ease. I decided to do the leisure cycle tour. If your in Hvar it's a must. So much to see along the cycle especially the different landscapes. From coastal views, to mountainous views and of course the lavender and grape fields. Massimo was the perfect guide. Stopping to take pictures for me, giving me the history of the place and just having great conversation along the way! We stopped off and tasted the local food and drinks which was amazing! It was so much fun and I couldn't believe at the end that we had completed 45km. All the staff are fantastic and super friendly! Thank you for a great experience.

My husband and I just finished an amazing 10 day trip to Croatia, and we both agree that our bike tour with Hvar Life was one of two absolute highlights (the other being a daylong boat tour we took with Hvar Adventure, with which Hvar Life is affiliated). The owner, Massimo, took just the two of us on a relatively easy 30km tour of the island of Hvar, which may be the most beautiful place I’ve ever visited. We also stopped at two wonderful and completely different local wineries - one, a small, family-run operation, and the other a cellar filled with a literal treasure of wine. Massimo himself was a fantastic guide, the bikes were brand new, the scenery magnificent, and the wine terrific. Just a perfect day. Whether you can barely ride a bike or you’re training for a triathlon, Massimo clearly knows how to craft a just-right speed and tour. Highly recommend to anyone traveling through Hvar - or greater Croatia.

The guides, Massimo and a Robert were excellent. Their attention to detail was superb. They were incredibly patient. The tours were spectacular, such a good opportunity to take in the sights of the island.
Massimo shares his love of Hvar and the people, making it a complete experience. The non bike part of the tour was really special. The tour of Hvar town, then to Konoba Humac were fantastic. The meal superb.
The bikes were top line in perfect condition, the Pinarello was a fantastic bike, I'd buy one next after riding this.
You only have to look at the workshop to know this would be the best place to hire a bike, it's spotless and Massimo takes care of them personally.
My top 5 things to do in Hvar
1 A tour with Hvar Life
2 Dine at Konoba Humac
3 Affogato at Jelsa
4 Tour the towns Jelsa, Vrboska and Stani Grad
5 Tour Hvar town.
