Frequently asked questions

How can I have the bike delivered to my hotel?Once you add the bicycle to your shopping cart, you can select the hotel or apartment where you are staying. The system will automatically calculate the shipping cost based on your location. We offer delivery and pick-up services to all points in Tenerife. Check our website for more details.
How does the booking process work?To reserve a bike, select the model you want from our bike section. Available bikes are sorted by category and size. If you're unsure of which size to choose, email us at . Once the booking is confirmed, you'll receive an email with the details. To collect your bike on the day of your reservation, present a valid ID or passport and a €100 deposit, which will be refunded to you at the end of the rental period.

Do you have any kind of insurance?All our bikes come with third-party liability insurance that covers damages caused to others, but only during our guided routes. It's important to note that rental bikes are not insured against theft or own damages since insurance companies don't offer this coverage for commercially used bikes.
How does the reservation cancellation policy work?Advance reservations can be canceled at no cost up to 48 hours before the start of the rental period. Cancellations made up to 24 hours before the rental period will incur a 50% cancellation fee of the reservation cost. Cancellations made within 24 hours will not be refunded.
What should I bring if I rent a bike?We recommend bringing your clothes, shoes, pedals, and helmet.
What accessories come with the bike?All our rental bikes are equipped with two bottle cages, a pump, and a saddlebag containing a spare tire, tire levers, and a multitool, all included in the rental price.
Do you rent pedals?For our rental bikes, we can provide Shimano SPD and SPD-SL, Look Keo, or flat pedals. If you use other pedal types, you can bring your own, and our mechanics will be happy to fit them on your rental bike.

What drivetrain do the road bikes have?All our bikes come with a 2x11 or 2x12 drivetrain. You can choose in the options if you want a compact (50x34) or standard (52x36) chainring. With the gear ratios we set up on the bikes (most use an 11x30 or 11x32), you don't need a triple chainring.
Do you offer rental bikes with child seats?Yes, we offer child seats, but only for city bikes.
Do you rent power meters?Yes, we have bike models that already come with power meters installed. If you wish to bring your own crank power meter, we can only install it on certain bike models. Pedals can be installed on all bikes.

Check directly with your hotel to ensure they can store your bike securely.
Can I ride on bike lanes or should I use roads?Cycling routes in Tenerife are mainly on open roads shared with other road users. We strongly advise all cyclists to follow traffic rules and cycle safely. Some roads may have designated bike lanes, but this isn't always the case.
