Hiring a bike

The guarantee of a well-equipped bike in a good state of repair!

Choose the bike to suit you from one of the many bike-hire companies available, be it a hybrid bike (VTC in French), gravel bike or electric bike (VAE in French). Some providers offer one-way rental ("aller-simple" in French), allowing you to hire your bike in one location but return it to another. Count €20 per day on average, or €100 per week for a hybrid bike (prices vary depending on standard of bike).

List of bike-hire companies specializing in long-distance touring

These bike-hire companies offer bicycles suitable for long-distance touring, as well as additional equipment, such as panniers or child-bike trailers, plus a one-way hire service, so you can hire a bike in one place and return it to another, enabling you to hire a bike from your starting point along the Veloscenic and leave it at your end point.

💡 Tips on the one-way service:
- The price for this service is high for two individuals, say, but a lot more advantageous for small groups.
- Using the bike-hire companies closest to your starting point can help you to find a lower price.
