Our rental bicycles: Reliable companions for cycling tours!
Just because you have to do your cycling tours without your own bicycle doesn’t mean you have to do without comfort!
Our rental bicycles are an ideal companion for your AugustusTours cycling tour, and save you the hassle of transporting your trusty steed to the starting point of your tour.
Sturdy steeds for a top tour
Our self-organised cycling tours are provided in conjunction with our own bicycle rental service, which comprises 95 touring models from established German brands (Kettler and Kalkhoff). The fleet is serviced in-house and used on tours along the southern stretch of the Elbe Cycle Path.
We are pleased to provide you with rental bicycles, which are ideally suited to the touring cyclist:
- Ladies’ models with step-through or low-crossbar frames
- Gents’ models
- Hub or derailleur gears (hub-gear comes along with back pedal brake)
- Various frame heights
- Anti-puncture tyres (manufacturers: Schwalbe and Continental)
- Electric bicycles, children’s bicycles and tandems available on request
On some of our cycling tours we will provide you with bicycles from partner companies, which may vary from the equipment and brands, mentioned above but also guaranty the same quality standard.
Rental bicycle handover
AugustusTours organises delivery to your first hotel and collection from your final hotel. Where required your rental bikes can be handed over in person and adjusted to your height. If you arrive with a group of more than eight persons we will be on hand in person to hand over your rental bicycles. To make sure that your cycling group has a comfortable and enjoyable ride, we will make all the adjustments you may require.
Accessories provided free of charge (per bicycle)
- Waterproof Ortlieb pannier (10 l)
- Repair kit & bicycle lock
- Map holder
- Speedometer (on request, additional fee of € 5.00 per bike, only reservable related to a booking of a rental bike)
Though neither Germany nor the Czech Republic requires adults to wear bicycle helmets, the Czech Republic does require minors to wear helmets. As AugustusTours does not rent out bicycle helmets for reasons of safety and hygiene, any guests who feel safer wearing a helmet when cycling or minors who will be entering the Czech Republic on their bicycle should bring their own helmet with them.
