About Us


BikeHireDirect Charente (16)

Philip and Sue run BikeHireDirect in the Charente region of South West France.

They live in the South Charente and when not delivering or servicing bikes, are busy renovating a rambling old 13th century French house. Giving Phil the chance to wield his power tools and Sue the opportunity to visit Brocantes is pretty much heaven for them.

They have previously worked in Sydney and London and have loved the opportunity to swap commuter trains, motorways, meal deals and takeaway coffees for bikes, wine, cheese, empty roads and glorious French countryside.

Philip and Sue can be contacted by phone on 0033 (0)5 45 25 24 09 or by e-mail charente@bikehiredirect.com



BikeHireDirect Charente Maritime (17)

Chris and Beth Wright operate BikeHireDirect in the Charente Maritime region of South West France.

After spending many happy family holidays in France they fell in love with the country and eventually married in the South of France in 2009! They now live in the Charente Maritime with their two small daughters.

They love the area for its charming scenery and relaxing family focussed lifestyle.

Chris and Beth can be contacted by phone on 0033 (0)5 40 00 08 98 or by e-mail charentemaritime@bikehiredirect.com



BikeHireDirect Dordogne (24)

Cedric and Chloé run BikeHireDirect in the Dordogne region of France.

They live in the heart of the Dordogne countryside with their son Edwin, surrounded by their many dogs, cats, horses and rabbits !

After a successful legal career Cedric, who is passionate about bikes, jumped at the opportunity to run his own business allowing him to spend more time with Chloé and Edwin.

When not delivering bikes, they can often be found at local running events where Chloé likes to compete in ultra trail running races… the perfect excuse to enjoy all the delicious food in the wonderful Dordogne region!

Cedric and Chloé can be contacted by phone on 0033 (0)9 84 05 58 86 or by e-mail dordogne@bikehiredirect.com



BikeHireDirect Gironde (33)

Gareth and Stephanie run BikeHireDirect in the Gironde region of France.

They were looking for a new and exciting challenge and saw the opportunity to move to France and run their own business as the perfect solution. After holidaying in France many times, and loving the city of Bordeaux in particular, they were delighted to move there with their two children.

When Gareth and Stephanie get the chance, they love nothing more than spending the day outdoors with their family either at the coast, in the pine forests or at one of the many amazing lakes that the region has to offer; with bikes always being their preferred mode of transport!

Gareth and Stephanie can be contacted by phone on 0033 (0)5 31 16 20 20 or by e-mail gironde@bikehiredirect.com

BikeHireDirect Vendee (85)

Kirk and Jill Little operate BikeHireDirect in the Vendee region of the Pays de la Loire.

They have been wanting to move to France for a couple of years and have been waiting for the correct house and business to come along.

Having recently moved to the Vendee from the UK, they have now found the perfect house and business. They are delighted to be here along with their Beagle called Jessie.

They really enjoy the outdoor life... eating al fresco, dog walking and cycling around the lovely Vendee countryside. A big bonus for them is living in the second sunniest place in France!

Kirk and Jill can be contacted by phone on 0033 (0)2 51 06 12 04 or by e-mail vendee@bikehiredirect.com



BikeHireDirect Vienne (86) and Haute Vienne (87)

David and Joanne run BikeHireDirect in the Vienne and Haute Vienne regions of France.

Living in the Haute Vienne area with their three dogs, they love the outdoor life and have visited many wild and remote places around the world, so exchanging their office-bound careers in the UK for beautiful rural France allows them to indulge in just that.

Having hired bicycles themselves whilst on holidays in other countries they are keen to provide the extra personal service which is offered by BikeHireDirect that has been missing with other bike hire experiences.

David and Joanne can be contacted by phone on 0033 (0)6 23 69 69 35 or by e-mail hautevienne@bikehiredirect.com
