We sanitize all of our bikes and hands both before delivery and at pickup. We follow the Ministry of Health's guidance on spacing and individual protection and ask our customers to do the same. Government decisions change often so we ask for updates through institutional channels.

Some services such as luggage transfer may require payment in advance, we will explain everything via email. The cancellation of a reservation can be made only if you have not paid a deposit or the amount and within 15 working days, in which case we refund the amount retaining only 10 euros of administrative management. Otherwise the amount is retained in full. In exceptional cases (e.g. border closures for Covid) and at our discretion, we may also take other measures such as a refund or a voucher for the same amount to use our services within a given period, usually at least one year.

How do Apulians drive cars?
Unfortunately not well, often you can find reckless driving around thinking of being in Formula One or you can see people who do not respect the limits or the road signs. We therefore ask our customers to always pay attention to the road, and even in the countryside to be careful because it happens to think you're alone and instead may pop out a car suddenly around the corner. Always use the bell if provided on your bike and avoid driving at night because our bikes are not ideal for night excursions (we provide in kit only two mini led lights to signal position).

Our bikes have different weights depending on the model, we take only aluminum or aluminum / carbon bikes to keep as light as possible, the weight of a hybrid complete with front bag and kit is around 15 kg and also depends on the size. Electric bikes can reach 20kg and racing bikes around 10kg.
