Somewhat older bikes but great cycling bikes. Cordial reception.Thanks to the 'tips' we cycled all the way to El Palmar, nice trip through nature, good paella, and flamingo's were circling above us while the sun made their pink feathers and black wingtips even brighter. The next day along the beach to 'little Venice' and part of the city.

We rented a beautiful road bike over the holiday season when the business was closed, however Eva made arrangements to make sure we could pick up the bike anyhow. It made the holiday in Valencia very special! The bike was in perfect condition and we enjoyed it very much.

It's not easy to hire to a nice road bike in Valencia, but Startbike solves that. They have a range of very nice bianchi frames fitted with Shimano 105 groupset and R5 wheels, very well maintained. Communication is easy; you fill out the online form and they contact you with more information and a contract after an agreement has been made. They are very helpful - they sorted a garmin mount free of charge after I forgot mine. You pick the bike up from Sweet Hotel in the city centre where Manolo meets you and talks you through the bike. He knows a lot about cycling in the local area and talked me through a couple of the routes I downloaded and times traffic out of the city would be busy. The ride north into the mountains is beautiful and highly recommended. When you are done you just take the bike back and you get your deposit back. A brilliant service and great day.

Eva and Manolo provided an outstanding service. Highly responsive via email and phone in advance of our trip, Eva accommodated our changing requirements with ease and good grace. Manolo dropped off and picked up the bicycles to and from our residence punctually and had great tips for local cycle routes. The equipment was of the highest standard and clearly well-maintained. It was a real treat to experience riding bikes of this specification through empty, twisting mountain passes. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Startbike to anyone planning a cycling holiday in Valencia.

Having never ridden a racing bike before I was tempted to rent one for the day so that I could enjoy a day in the saddle with visiting family. I hired a top end Bianchi carbon fibre bike for €48, booking through the StartBike website contact form. Communication was excellent, and changed to English when it was quickly established that my level of Spanish wasn’t good enough. Options available were seat and peddle types, height of seat, which was prepared for me in advance and collection and drop off times. I also paid a €300 deposit, which is understandable given the price of the Bianchi. Strangely StartBike have no shop premises, so collection and drop off are at a hotel reception in the city centre. This caused no problems however, and I collected and returned the bike without any problems, with a friendly, English speaking receptionist. The bike was incredible and I enjoyed a full day cycling in the mountains. Recommended if, like me, you fancy trying a decent bike!
