“If you go to Lanzarotte - why not have a day out on a bicycle ?”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We have just returned from a diving holiday in Lanzarotte, and after our early morning dive we thought that we would try and hire some bikes. Tucked away up a steep road to the left off the main shopping highway we found revolution bikes. What a wonderful find: fantastic bikes in the middle of the Atlantic. All the the bikes are a make called "specialized" which really delighted us as we have the same make of bike at home in the uk and we know just how good they are. The owners sorted us out very quickly with some mountain bikes and provided us with a map and a route to a nearby port - it was very hilly, but then Lanzarotte is really a collection of volcanoes. We were lucky enough to be caught in the first major rain on the island for years and got soaked to the skin, but soon dried out when the sunshine returned. The day out was so fantastic that we went back for more, and on another day we cycled all the way to Arricefe - there is a dedicated cycle track all the way alongside the sea. We could not have been more pleased - so many times when you hire a bike on holiday one of the brakes doesn't work or the saddle has fallen off - but these were very good, well maintained, expensive bikes.

Thank you for your review. We also think the cycleway along the beaches is a very good addition to what Lanzarote has to offer. We love the picture of our bike enjoying a beer with you. Many thanks.

“A "Revolution"....... Friendly! Efficient! Cycle Hire”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

My wife and I have just spent two weeks in Peurto del Carmen for the first time and really loved the healthy outdoor lifestyle. As we normally hire bikes whilst on holiday, we feel it is the best way to see and feel what a resort is really about , we hired bikes on two separate occasions from Revolution Cycles, located in a side street just off the central area of PDC when we got there the shop was busy and the two owners were busy dealing with customers, however they soon acknowledged us with a "hello" and "we'll be right with you". While waiting we listened as they explained all aspects of the bikes to their customers and nothing was too much trouble to them. When it was our turn to be served we got exactly the same level of attention and detail delivered in a very friendly manner. The bikes we hired were "town bikes" (12 Euros each) and proved to be the most comfortable and user friendly bikes we have ever used, so much so that we returned a few days later and were given the same bikes. The cycle route extends from the "old port" and you would have to go along way to find a better cycle route which extends along the sea front passed the airport right through to Arrecife and beyond. The cycles we hired from Revolution Cycles really added to the enjoyment of our holiday, together with the level of service (they will come out immediately at anytime during the hire period if there is any problem i.e. puncture) If your'e considering hiring a bike in Peurto Del Carmen , and we definitely will, then you'll be hard pushed to find anywhere better than Revolution Cycles.

“Revolution bikes in PDC Lanzarote”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Excellent shop easy to find just off the main "strip." Rented a Specialized Sirrus for four days and it was in excellent condition. Service is very friendly and genuinely helpful and the prices are very good - I mean 40 euos for four days? Really helped to make my holiday. Do yourself a favour and visit these guys. Even if you are not a keen cyclist you may just find a gentle bike ride a pleasant surpise on your holiday and I definitely recommend Revolution bikes.
