Pro Bike Hire - Mallorca

Postby timmitchell » 21 Sep 2010, 8:40pm

Family holiday during half term so could be busy, will only get in two days riding, am I best pre-ordering a bike for 5 days (which will give benefit of flexiblity) or just walking into the shop on the day I can and risking them not having higher end road bikes in stock?


Anyone had any experience?

Thanks in advance

Tim

Where abouts are you based.
I was in Cala Bona and hired a bike from Sanchos cycles.

It was cost effective to hire the bike for 7 days even though I only intended riding perhaps four.
I just walked into the shop and bike was ready next day. It was March though so perhaps not as busy?

Try Emailing where you intend to hire from or check out their website.

I went past the same hire shop in mid June, and they had plenty of road bikes available. They seem to sell out of high end MTBs quickly though.

If you are in Pollenca and only intending to use a bike couple of days from Probike then probably walking in to shop is probably best option.

Might just be worth contacting them first.

I really do not see that they would be busy during Oct half term, most bikies I know avoid such trips at major school holiday times, as being far too expensive, only going outside school holidays.

March April and May are the busiest times for bike hire schemes out there.

If you are staying at the Pollensa Park then ask at the desk. They know the best places to contact.
