Solution ZERO WORRIES!
✅ Luggage Transfers
With this solution we lighten your load, you only have to think about following the navigator and pedaling in freedom. Every day we will move your luggage according to the structures that you have identified.
You will book autonomously the accommodations according to the program of the tracks, also make sure that the facilities have a reception open during our time slots of luggage transfer and finally check that you have the possibility to store the bikes safely.
For the luggage transfer is important that the structures are not in historic centers as usually inaccessible to cars, in which case we may require a surcharge. In case you want to be sure to choose well we can show you some bike friendly accommodations or that we already know.
The first day we will meet at your accommodation and during the delivery of the bike we will carry out a bike fitting and briefing where we will explain in detail the tracks and how to use our gps navigator, you will also receive a leaflet. The time of moving luggage will be every day from 9.00 am to 3.00 pm, different times can be agreed in advance upon our availability.

For racing bike models in addition to helmet and water bottle and as an alternative to the front / side bag we provide the maxi expandable saddlebag Ortlieb with inside the cycle kit and also any special pedals if required.
