Best cycling routes from St. Remy and bike rentals?

We would love some tips on the best cycling routes and places to rent good bikes from St. Remy de Provence--two or three hours of biking, maybe once for four, at a moderate pace. We have visited there once before and will be there for a few days in June. Alternately, we could put the bikes on the rental car and start from somewhere not too distant sometimes. We have previously visited Les Baux, Arles, Le Pont du Gard, and Avignon. Nimes is one of our must sees. We will be spending two additional nights in Rousillon and hope to go cycling there, too. Do the better rental places have helmets, good locks, lights?

Thanks,

Diane and Paul

Hello,

Thank you for your post. Sorry I did not see it until now. Do these bike stores provide helmets?

Thanks

Many thanks. We are also going biking from Roussilon near the Luberon. Would it be best, do you think, to rent a bike for the whole time from St. Remy, or to rent a second bike for a day in Roussilon? Do bike rental places rent helmets?

Many thanks,

Diane

Virtually all bike rental shops in Provence and the Luberon can rent you everything you need, including helmets.

There are a couple of bike rental operations in the Luberon that have multiple offices, so you can pick up a bike in one town and drop it in another. Not sure if St Remy is included though.

The Sun-e-bike shop in St Remy has a sister shop in Bonnieux, just closeby to Roussillon.

You can even rent a cart for your lugggage and shopping from them.

and the rates are decreasing when booking longer...
