Accessories for Your Bicycle Trip
Getting around in Europe or Costa Rica on one of our rental bikes doesn't mean you have to give up the creature comforts. We rent bike panniers, roof racks for your rental car or van, B.O.B. bike trailers; we can provide route planning, villa rentals, hotel booking assistance, luggage shuttles, even bike theft insurance -- just ask us for what you need, we probably can provide it or get you in touch with someone who can.
We can provide maps with highlighted bicycle routes. Prices for a Marked Map of the area you are covering includes one new map per group (more maps available for a small fee). We use our local knowledge of good roads and great rides to create custom bicycle routes for you, which we give to you in the form of brand new maps with highlighted routes that you can follow. Note that this doesn’t include a step-by-step guide or turn/cue sheet. If you are interested in something more elaborate contact us. What these routes buy you is 25 years of experience in the area designing and delivering bicycle tours.
Please note, if we haven't pedaled your route sometime in the last 35 years we'll find someone who has. In addition, we will gladly recommend routes and charge our standard €42 per half hour consulting fee with most itineraries taking an hour or less.
If you are looking for a villa or apartment or a hotel with great rides nearby, we are happy to help you with our vast knowledge of lodging options around Europe. To see our featured villas, click here, or e-mail us for destinations not listed here.
We have a standard booking fee of €25 per hotel per group.

In our years of renting bicycles, we've had virtually no incidents of theft or damage, although we recognize the prospect of mishaps exists. So we offer a means to insure your rental bike against theft and damage caused by accident for selected rentals (please inquire about this product for your rental as not all of our affiliates or agents provide this option).
This insurance costs €10. It provides the following coverage:
Many home-owner policies and some car insurance policies provide coverage against incidental theft and damage while the insured is traveling; please check your policy to see if this is the case.
"I would really like to say how fantastic our two guides were. Jeremy and Gwendal were given the highest rating by all our clients, and Carolyn and I thought they were the two of the best guides we have ever used in our 25 years of putting together bike trips. And also thank you Silvia for your excel-lent support over the past year."
