Frequently asked questions
Cycle Holidays - If I hire a bike will it fit me and what equipment should I bring?
If you decide to hire a bike we will ensure it is set to your specific height requirements. When making your holiday booking, we will request specific measurements of your existing bike so we can set it up in the same way (see diagram below). Each bike includes saddle (see question on saddle) & pedals (see question on pedals). In addition, you get a free water bottle and Bedar Cycling Holidays cycle top to keep.
Cycle Holidays - Can you supply a bike or can I bring my own?
Yes and Yes!
Cycle Holidays/Day Excursions - Can I bring my own saddle?
For E-Bike and day road bike excursions - only with saddle supplied as limited time use.
Cycle Holidays/Day Excursions - What pedals do you supply?
E- Leisure Bikes - come with universal flat pedals.
Cycle Holidays/Day Excursions - Are the hire bikes safe?
In a word ... yes! All bikes are double checked by qualifed bike mechanics through our 22 point safety checklist before they are hired out. They also have an ongoing service programme and the bikes are continually maintained and any component which is showing signs of wear and tear is replaced. Our focus is on you having an awesome cycling holiday and know that for this to be so the bike must be in excellent working condition and be safe.
Cycle Holidays/Day Excursions - Where does Bedar Cycle Holidays operate from?
Cycle Holidays/Day Excursions - I'm not familar with the area, can you give advice on where to cycle?
Dont worry ... your Bedar Cycle holiday includes four days of guided tours with the perfect mix of coast and mountains, in short something for everyone ... oh and its sunny and warm mostly!
Cycle Holidays/Day Excursions - Do I need to wear a helmet?
The wearing of a helmet in Spain is mandatory in interurban areas, but there is no obligation in urban areas. However under 16's must wear a helmet at all times. We however, strongly recommend that a helmet be worn at all times and if you choose not to, then it is against our advice and at your own risk (a risk we don't think worth taking).
Cycle Holidays/Day Excursions - Insurance
Cycle Holidays/Day Excursions - Who is responsible for any damage to or theft of a bike?
Cycle Holidays - Prior to riding a hire bike we ensure your bike is presented in perfect condition and having gone through a 22 point safety check and double checked by two qualified bike mechanics. Once you leave with the bike you assume full responsibilty of it.
Cycle Holidays/Day Excursions - What happens if I have a mechanical problem?
If on our guided tours you will have two cycle mechanics with you at all times so we should be able to get any minor issues resolved quickly (flat tyre etc).
Cycle Holidays/Day Excursions - What do I do if I have an emergency?
Our focus is on safe and considerate cycling on the road. As we have stated we are not a training camp and not looking to get there fast but focus on enjoyment and pleasure of cycling with a group of friends. However, if an emergency situation occurs, and you are on a guided tour we will ensure any necessary action is taken immediately, emergency services or support vehicle called, as appropriate.
Day Excursions - Do I need to be an experienced cyclist?
Road Bike Hire - Yes. This is aimed at existing road bike cyclists and who have a basic awareness and experience of riding a road bike on the open road.
Cycle Holidays - Can non-cyclists come on holidays?
Yes, of course.
