This varies from tour to tour. We try to list specific information in the 'Bike rentals' section of each tour page on the Dates & Prices tab. The local tour operator has selected the ideal bike for each tour's terrain, and we stick with their recommended bike types.
For most tours, handlebars are upright, pedals flat, and seats and tires wide. The wider tires are more forgiving on the occasional gravel or dirt surface and on cobblestone streets.
Electrically assisted bikes (e-bikes) are becoming more widely available, and are specifically mentioned in the tour listings.
Tandems, child trailers, and tag-alongs (also called slip-streamers or third wheels) are also sometimes available.
Many tour operators retire their entire fleets every two years to keep their bikes in top condition.
Please see each tour for available equipment.
