Where can you hire or repair a bike on the Route des Grandes Alpes®?
We’ve established a list of bike hire companies and bike repair companies, both for conventional bikes and e-bikes, dotted all along the cycle route. You can contact them and see for yourself what you think of the services they offer. As far as we know, at time of writing, none offers a one-way service, i.e. coming to collect your bike at your end point.
Is hiring a bike a good option for tackling the Route des Grandes Alpes®?
Bike hire companies today offer excellent materials and equipment for hire, in a good state of repair and well kitted out. Nevertheless, we recommend, if possible, that you should reach the route bringing your own bike, which you’ll have had the chance to test out and to adjust, even if you’ve hired the bike from a provider near your home.
- If you’ve chosen to tackle the route with a specialist travel agency – Vélorizons and LaRébenne offer bikes and e-bikes for hire.
- If you’re planning just a short cycling break.
