Bike Hire Gironde

The Gironde department in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region of south-west France is famous for its Bordeaux wine growing regions, magnificent Atlantic beaches and expanses of pine forests. The many miles of cycle paths and quiet roads through the vines make it the ideal place for riding a bike.

The coastal region of the Gironde known as the Cote d'Argent, is not only part of the longest beach in Europe, but also home to the Dune de Pilat, the tallest sand dune in Europe.

Beyond the dunes to the south of the Arcachon Bay are the forests and lakes of the great forest of the Landes, the largest forest in Europe.

At the heart of the region, the historic city of Bordeaux is a UNESCO world heritage site. Recognised as the wine capital of the world, many of the most famous wine regions in the world including Medoc, Saint-Emilion, Pomerol, and Margaux are all an easy bike ride away.

We offer bike hire right across the Gironde region, delivering bikes direct to your holiday or rental accommodation free of charge, meaning hassle free bike hire for your holiday in the Gironde. For more information or to check availabilty please don't hesitate to contact us

Bike Hire Bordeaux

Bordeaux is a fabulous city that is very bicycle friendly. The city is a joy to explore by bike with cycle paths running throughout. For anyone looking to get away from the city, there is a cycle path running the full 60km all the way to the coastal town of Lacanau. Or why not try the Roger Lapebie cycle path? This famous path leads you out of the city where you pick up the Canal de Garonne. If you have the time (and energy) this will lead you all the way to Toulouse
