What is your preferred payment method?

Hi Leslie. I am having trouble with my paypal account. Is it okay when you deliver the bikes I leave you a deposit on my Visa? This would be easier for us Canadians. Thanks

Until I get a mobile credit/debit card reader, cash is the preferred payment method.
You’re welcome to leave the deposit in your own currency though because it saves you having spare Euros at the end of your stay (Canadian / American / Australian dollars and UK pounds are accepted).

[you can also pay upfront with Paypal – credit card payments are accepted through Paypal – I absorb all transaction fees]

Potential link up / partnership with Tenerife Training?

Hi Leslie,

I found you on the net as I am looking for a company who offer bike hire, bike route expertise and passion about what they do…and your company seems to fit the bill.

We are a small company just about to launch our site Going Tenerife (hopefully a working copy by the end of this week!) which mainly offers all types of accommodation to tourists, but our angle is to make sure that our customers get to see the real Tenerife while they are here, which is why we are trying to hook up with horse riding stables, yachting schools, expert walkers, tennis coaches, astronomers, wine experts etc, that all have a passion for what they do.

Would you be interested in discussing a potential link up of our companies, so that your services are on offer to our customers?

Look forward to your response.

Kind regards


Yes I am one of the most passionate about biking on the island! I do also speak Spanish fluently.

I am usally happy to do link exchanges with other websites for people provided they are relavant and contain useful information, preferably with a good design layout. I can say that at this point in time, I’m not taking/giving any percentages for referrals, etc. Mainly because it has never worked for me in the past.

The thing is, most bike riders who plan to cycle in Tenerife will already find me quite easily on the web before their plane even lands here. Some potential clients might not have thought to cycle here until they arrive. They generally hire a bike for just one day and I’ve found they’re generally not fit enough because of the terrain. Those sort of instant referrals don’t even account for 1% of my business.

Finding cyclists [and paying customers] that want to train here is like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack. What I’m trying to say is that it is a niche market and I have adapted to fill that tiny little void.
