Brittany Borders Bicycling

Cycle hire and rental

We can support your cycling holiday in Brittany and Normandy with cycle or tandem rental/hire

We pride ourselves on supplying quality, well maintained bikes including hybrid bikes, trekking bikes, child bikes and tandems. Child seats, tag-alongs and buggies are also available for attaching to adult bikes. We can cater for all the cycling needs of the family, with bikes and equipment suitable for all ages from 6 months upwards.

Bicycle hire is by prior booking only, together with the payment of a deposit of 15% of the total cost to reserve the bikes. There is a minimum hire period of three days. We are a small company offering a personal service and do not hold a large number of bicycles, so recommend reserving bikes in advance.

Just a quick note to say thanks once again for all your help with the bikes for our cycling trip. In the end we managed to clock up over 1000 kms in two weeks around Brittany and the Loire Valley, and your trekking bikes were absolutely perfect for the job. Really comfortable and very generous gearing so that no hill was too steep! We really appreciated your quick responses to all our enquiries from Australia and the fact that the drop off and pick up was so easily arranged. All in all a fantastic experience! As to the quality of the bikes or your service, we could not recommend you highly enough.

Biking to the Mont St-Michel

When you hire a bike from us, we can also provide helmets, puncture repair kits, tyre inflators and padlocks at no extra cost.

Lightweight tents (2kg), sleeping bags and sleeping mats can be hired from us to carry on your bikes if you would like the option of camping.

Maps of the region can also be hired from us, which have been published specifically for the use of cyclists. (IGN Scale 1:100000).

There are several long distance off-road cycle trails in the region which have been converted from disused railway lines, known as 'voies vertes' in French, offering a network of traffic-free and easy cycling for all the family.

We hired bikes from John and Veronica on a self-guided 3 night break. We have cycled in different parts of Europe, and can say that cycling in Brittany is right up there. The roads are traffic free and well signed, and the Voies Vertes are brilliant for tranquil off road cycling. Brittany Borders Bicycling gave a personalised service, with well-maintained bikes, local knowledge, and lots of well-thought-out extras. Thoroughly recommended.

There is one of these waymarked routes (voie verte - V2) which follows the towpath of the Ille-et-Rance canal from Rennes to Treverien. This ride can be extended beyond Treverien via the beautiful mediaeval town of Dinan to the coast at Dinard and St Malo. Three days is ideal for comfortably cycling this route and we can, for example, deliver bikes to Rennes and then pick them up in St Malo. We can offer information about this popular route, including details of accommodation en route.

We had a very good experience of renting bikes from you. Your bikes were definitely fit for purpose - robust and well-maintained. Communication with you was excellent too, and you were accommodating and flexible. We had a fantastic holiday pedalling from Rennes to St Malo (voie verte - V2). We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Brittany Borders Bicycling.

Just wanted to write a note to thank you for all your help and advice before, during and after we rented the bicycles from you. Your commitment to excellent customer service truly made our holiday in France very special and enjoyable. Thanks for giving so many suggestions to tailor our trip with our 4 year old making it perfect for everyone to enjoy! The bicycles were very comfortable and we all had a wonderful time. I've recommended you to all my friends who are thinking of going to France and having a ride there.

Bicycles can be transported free of charge on most trains in Brittany and Normandy, and by combining cycling with travel by train can enable you to extend your cycling tour, thereby seeing more of the region. The train stations nearest to where we are based are in Pontorson, Avranches, Dol-de-Bretagne, Granville, Combourg, St Malo, Dinan, Vire, Montreuil-sur-Ille and Rennes.

Just a note to say thank you for all your help with our holiday. We had a great time cycling and won't hesitate of course to recommend you.

Just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you for your service. The bikes worked very well and our journey from Rennes to Mont St-Michel via Dinan was well chosen and very memorable. We would be happy to recommend your company to anyone. Thanks again.

TANDEM HIRE - GIVE IT A TRY!

Whether you are planning on buying your first tandem or just fancy a go on one, we can teach you the basics of riding a tandem safely, from starting off to stopping correctly. This way you will get the most out of the experience and will be riding like experts in no time. As tandem riders ourselves, we can also advise you on such things as what features to look for when buying a bike, ongoing care and maintenance, and information on tandem groups and resources.

Family tandeming on the voie verte using kiddy cranks for the young stoker

Hire a tandem from us and come and experience the enjoyment of cycling on a 'bicycle made for two', either for a short break or longer. We can help you to choose and book your accommodation, and then deliver the bike to you.

We have a kiddy crank kit available, which we are happy to fit for any young stokers, so that all the family can enjoy the pleasures of tandeming.

Thanks again for all your help with the tandem, your patience with our endless emails & questions before we arrived was much appreciated. It was reassuring knowing that a good bike with all the equipment we needed was going to meet us at our hotel. We had a great time, tandeming is such a laugh! Good to meet you both and good luck.

I rented a bicycle from Brittany Borders Bicycling when I wanted to ride from Rennes to Dinan to Le Mont St. Michel in April 2017. They were able to deliver the bike to my hotel and pick it up from me at Mont St Michel. The bike was a hybrid, and perfect for Brittany's sometimes paved, sometimes packed gravel and sometimes dirt bike paths (the Voie Vertes). The bike was in excellent condition and John and Veronica were very prompt, professional and helpful. As an American who speaks no French, I found this British expat couple to be very helpful. The cost was also very reasonable, especially compared to the other vendors in the area. I highly recommend them!
