As novelty, we offer you these tandem bicycles totally equipped and prepared for cycle touring. The experience obtained with our other rental services and the realization of cycle touring routes personally allows us to offer this new service, which had been requested by many of our customers. From now nothing will stop you of doing the Camino de Santiago as a couple or having a great holiday cycle touring with somebody.
CONSIDERATIONS OF RENTAL SERVICE
In order to process this service we need the request to be made at least 10 days in advance.
Tandem bicycles are very bulky and therefore their transportation is not easy, so please request this service with anticipation in order to organize everything correctly.
On the other hand the number of tandem bicycles we have is limited and there are high chances of not having any bicycle available if one does not have foresight.
The rental price includes all the services mentioned avobe, even the transport of the tandem bicycle to the location chosen as starting point of the route.
On the Camino we rely on our accommodation network (READ MORE HERE ) for the delivery and collection of bicycles. However if you wish you can receive or deliver the bicycle at any other place of your choice (for example hotels, country houses, bicycle workshops, etc.)
During the reservation process through this website you have to provide, amongst other data needed:
- Rental starting day.
- Delivery location of the bicycle.
Manufactured by MASSI, this MTB tandem has been specially chosen by us because it is ideal for routes combining pavement and soil. It gets on very well in the Camino de Santiago and of course in any other route that is done calmly.
Remember that our bicycles are delivered free of charge anywhere in Spain and Portugal.
Here you can see the specific model of tandem bicycle we rent (MASSI DUAL TEAM TANDEM ELITE). This bicycle is equipped with high quality components and more importantly, it has been reviewed and adjusted with the accessories needed for a cycle touring route.
EQUIPMENT INCLUDED IN THE PACK.
Rental price includes transportation to any location you propose as start of the route and also the collection anywhere within Spain or Portugal where you decide to finish your route.
