Change of bike rental period due to weather?

Hello, I would like to rent a bike for three days, but have still a few questions in mind:

1. what if e.g. one week before my renting starts there is a rain forecast for my rental days, is there a possibility to change days or cancel without cost – what’s your policy on this?
2. my current bike has a sloping frame (Specialized Roubaix) size 56. Virtual top tube length 56,5cm (+11cm stem) and effective seat tube 56cm. Would you have the 56cm Pro-Lite Cumeo Rival or Ultegra available?
3. Ok to change my own saddle on the bike?
4. would there be any open group rides organized that I could join?


To answer your questions:

1) Most people do not cancel due to the weather. Will your airline or hotel refund your holiday because of rain? It is just a case of luck with the weather. If you don’t want to commit & reserve a bike, you will almost
certainly miss out during christmas time.

2) We only have a 56cm Pro Lite bike available on the 12th & 13th of December, for 2 days (shimano ultegra, compact cranks). Otherwise if you want a bike for three days, there is a 58cm leader 730R road bike

3) Yes that is definitely okay. You can attach any of your own equipment to the bikes. GPS, make handlebar adjustments, etc.

4) We have stopped doing group rides and focus on bike hire. The best thing is to contact a bike club, or have a look at Tags: The Bike Guru // 2 Comments »

  1. OK, I’m in training for le Marmot but the weather here in the UK is pants for hil training and I want to avoid any damp induced lung infections.

    Do you know if there are any good road clubs doing longer runs on the island in the Mar/Apr period?


    Hanna ;o)

  2. Check out this list of bike clubs in Tenerife. I suspect the best ones in the South will be:
    РClub ciclista Chave̱a
    – Club ciclista Chineje.
