Had a really good experience. Bikes were in really good order and Dave provided lots of good advice on suitable routes. We hired two carbon road bikes for three days and I would thoroughly recommend cycling in Rhodes in general (though it can be quite hilly!) and Get Active Rhodes in particular.

Amazing service! Being in Rhodes with a road bike was the best!

I have been renting bikes in my trips all over the world, and Get Active Rhodes is by far the best service I have ever had. I booked a very last minute solo-holiday to Rhodes. I found Get Active Rhodes on google and I decided to ask for a road bike. Dave helped me with everything. I landed at 10 pm and the morning after Dave came with a road bike in perfect conditions. Everything was set and ready: even the saddle was already fixed for my height, I was very impressed. The asphalt in Rhodes is very good for road bikes (much better than the brittle and full of holes roads that we have here in the UK). The roads felt quite safe (there weren't as many cars or mopeds as in other Greek islands) and I never suffered the heat while riding. I am not a professional cyclist and not very good with climbing uphill, but I managed to reach every place I wanted with the bike, as the hills in Rhodes are quite gentle.

I highly recommend to get a bike and get active in Rhodes.

If you want a decent bike and even better service these are the guys.
Dave turned up bang on time., set us up with alternative pedals, tweaked the saddles and then suggested some routes and times to avoid main roads. Off you go!
Fully equipped bikes with tools and computer mount.
Gearing just right.
General word of warning, 10% gradients are more like cat 2 but you are there to get active!

Very efficient service. I rented a carbon bike for a week and the owner delivered it to me perfectly in time and in very very good conditions. Offered kind advice as to roads, tips etc. So if you fancy riding a bike in Rhodes, this is the go-to place. I strongly recommend it. A pity it was just just to hot to ride longer. The inner land has plenty of nice tarmac roads to discover. And plenty of ascents and descents. See you next time. Massimo

Dave was very quick to respond to bike hire when I inquired and gave very good advice about where to stay. Although my trip was slightly cut short by a 2nd lockdown Dave quickly alerted me and refunded me. His advice of routes and the island were faultless.

I hired a carbon road bike for a week-long holiday on Rhodes and was so glad I contacted Dave at Get Active Rhodes. Communication was excellent at all times. Dave provided a bike with a perfect sizing for me and also supplied several great routes on the island for me relative to my location, he also supplied .gpx files for my Garmin which was excellent as I didn't know the island that well.

The bike was dropped off at my hotel and arrived in excellent condition, I've hired bikes elsewhere while on holiday and they are usually a bit tired, however, my bike was super clean and obviously very well maintained. Get Active Rhodes should be the benchmark for all holiday bike rentals!

Dave is very friendly and happy to help with any advice you need relative to your cycling trip. I heard about Get Active Rhodes and Dave in Cyclist Magazine when they were the front cover feature a few months ago. I can see now why they featured so heavily in a magazine of that stature.

Dave informed me they are branching into cycling holiday packages which is excellent news. I will definitely be returning to Rhodes for a cycling holiday as it has absolutely everything, great climbs, smooth surfaces, long sweeping descents, stunning scenery and the roads in the south of the island are mostly traffic-free! A cyclist's dream!

Excellent service from start to finish, highly recommended!

Hired a carbon road bike for 7 days in August 2020 while on a family holiday

Excellent to deal with - Dave dropped and collected the bike to my hotel exactly when he said he would, and provided several routes and tips on place to ride.

Bike was perfect - carbon Genesis Zero set up with a 32 cassette to get up the many hills in Rhodes.

I rode early morning to avoid daytime heat - much quieter than Spain/Majorca, not many shops once you are up in the hills so make sure you bring food and water along with you.

Fingers crossed I will be heading back to Rhodes again this year, so will definitely be contacting Dave again to hire another bike for my stay. Recommend without hesitation.

Cycling in Greece demands a comfortable bike for uphill and downhill. Get Active Rhodes delivers the bike you need: the carbon bike albeit basic in gears and breaks did the job!
Excellent service: bike is delivered and collected with nice small talk on favourate cycling routes on the island.
Highly recommended!

David is a super nice guy! The bike I rented for 5 days was great! Whenever I sent David an e-mail he responded very quick. He even sent some routes I could do around the Island of Rhodes.
The bike was delivered and picked up right on the time we agreed upon.
I would highly recommend Get Active Rhodes to friends/family whenever they want to hire a bike on Rhodes

Very happy with my experience of using this cycle hire company.
Dave, an affable Glaswegian, delivered the cycles very punctually to my hotel and he gave very good communications throughout.
The cycles were very well maintained and set up and once armed with some recommendations from Dave, some fantastic cycling was had.
The roads in Rhodes are a little variable but better outside of the built up areas in my experience.
Lots to recommend when considering hiring bikes.
