Bicycles – Bike Rentals
CycleItalia now offers a way to make your Italian cycling vacations experience even easier. After reserving a bicycle with Cycle Italia, all you need do is pack your cycling gear and get on the plane. Please note bicycles are available ONLY in conjunction with CycleItalia bicycle vacations.
These bicycles have often been described as perfect for CycleItalia cycling vacations. They feature Campagnolo components including an ultra-low gear so no hill or mountain will be too steep. An adjustable stem makes your perfect position just an adjustment away. For guided tours all bicycles are equipped with two water bottles (yours to keep), bottle cages, frame-mounted pump, seatbag with patchkit and tire levers, a precisely calibrated cycle computer and our Cue-Clip to hold your map.
Our clients raved: “I don’t miss my Colnago!” and “I’d forgotten just how nice it is to ride an Italian bike!”
Adding a pro-quality rental bike to your CycleItalia adventure is inexpensive too. We now offer three choices – our “classic” all-steel bike with Campagnolo Mirage triple gruppo (low gear of 30 X 28) or our “standard” model with aluminum/carbon frame and fork and Campagnolo Veloce compact gruppo (low gear of 34 X 32) or our new “premium*” full-carbon bike with Campagnolo Potenza 11-speed gruppo (low gear of 34 X 32) Choose “classic” or “standard” @ $299 or “premium” @ $399. Simply check the space on your reservation form and we’ll send you details on how to reserve your choice of bicycle in the perfect size.
- Availability is limited to popular sizes on a first-come, first-served basis. Bicycles are NOT available for use except in conjunction with CycleItalia bicycle vacations and the rental period is limited to the duration of your tour.
- You MUST supply your own pedals as well as helmet and other cycling equipment. For the best comfort and fit we suggest you bring your favorite saddle as well, we’re happy to install it during the fitting/adjustment session.
