Bike Renting for our trips
We use our bikes for maximum 2 seasons or 2 years and afterwards, we sell them out in the used market. Then we purchase the newer model directly from the factory or from the nearby authorized distributor so that our bikes can be so strong and safe. We have our own service center where bikes are maintained on regular basis and we check every bike before the bike is used on the route.
Therefore, when you rent our bikes, you get the high-quality bikes and it can save you more luggage allowance. We provide helmets along with the bike when you book the tour with us. Besides, for the longer tours, our tour guide always makes sure you have all extra tubes, first-aid kid, and so on.
For the longer trips that starts from 4 days and above, we provide you on of our company's high-quality and specially designed cycling jerseys made and printed in Thailand and a brand-new water bottle. If you are comfortable with your own bottle, helmets and so on, you are welcome to bring them along. For the women riders, WSD designed seats are recommended for your comfort. If you are a cyclist riding with SPD pedals, we recommend you to bring the shoes and cleats along with you.
