CYCLE HIRE

We have a fleet of Merida hybrid bikes that are extremely popular with our clients. They are very comfortable to ride (without being cumbersome) and the 700c wheels help them to roll nice and freely on what is mostly well surfaced riding.

Our standard equipment package consists of:

Dual panniers
Suspension seat post
Drink bottle cage
Comfort grips
Toolkit
Pump
Quality helmet

Our depot is located within 100 mt of the A2O finish point. Our bike hire rates start at $35 / per day (based on a seven day hire) and we have cycle computers available also at $4 / per day. We can offer storage for bikes and vehicles on site also if required.
