Should I bring my own bike or hire one locally?

It’s surprisingly easy to travel with your bike; with prior arrangement most airlines will carry your bike for no extra charge. For most of the trips we recommend you bring your own bike (as long as it is up to the job), as it is good to be familiar and comfortable with the bike you are riding. As all of our trips involve some off road cycling it must be a mountain bike and though not essential, front suspension will make your ride more comfortable. A full service before coming is recommended. However, on most of our trips we do have mountain bikes for hire if needed and can arrange this for you. These bikes are always well maintained late model alloy bikes with front suspension.Helmets are compulsory on all of our trips as mountain biking can be a potentially dangerous activity; we also recommend you bring your own water bottle/camel-bag and gloves.
