The carefully chosen itineraries facilitate the discovery of many sights and attractions punctuating this territory through trails and bike paths rather than main roads. Sun-e-Bike, cycling freely !

“Great way to go!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

My wife and I rented bikes for most of July (which is the cheapest way to go). Apart from glorious rides, long lunches and spectacular scenery, I was able to get to the top of Mt Ventoux just before Chris Froome arrived with TDF, with a little help from my "moteur". So, fun and serious cycling combined in a sensational month in the Luberon. We'll be back next year and Sun-E-Bikes were the most accommodating and friendly shops to deal with. Final hint - always check your changeover battery level before you leave the changeover station!

“Smell the flowers - go on!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

This is by far the best way to get around your local villages in la provence. While some days you need a car to go further in distance, nothing beats the open air, the smell of flowers and trees, the sounds of the birds and being able to get right into the centre of towns and villages without the hassle of a traffic, parking etc. The bikes work very well and Florian is a true gentleman.

“Best way to explore the Luberon”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We enjoyed our morning on the bikes (mum dad and 8yo on the trailer bike) so much that we did the same 44km loop again a couple of days later. Our recommendation is go for a whole day, rather than rush around in a half day., See some fabulous sights, tackle hills that you would never dream of on a non-electric assist bike, have a picnic or lunch at one of the cafe's (Christine's at Saignon is great value and atmosphere). From a bike you can smell the lavender in the air and feel the sun's rays on your face. This is definitely the best way to explore the Luberon - but take your time with it. We were also surprised that even on narrow steep and windy roads motorists were always careful and considerate of cyclists. Very important when you have a small person with you. The staff were also very friendly and professional. Direction maps could have been a bit better. they seemed comprehensive but we still got lost several times despite our best efforts not to! This is another reason to make sure you have plenty of time as getting lost is not such an issue if you don't have to return the bike at lunchtime.

“Highly recommended!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

a group of six of us rented Sun-E bikes and had a blast. we covered about 45km in 5 hours, including a one hour stop for lunch in Saignor.

we were a little skeptical when we booked but i can't imagine all of us seeing as much as we did on regular bikes -- the hills in the area really are pretty steep and the electric boost makes an amazing difference. it's legal EPO!

it was a lot of fun and maxine and florian (aka Heisenberg) were really helpful and friendly.
