About
Rent a bike in Palermo and make the most out of your day in this vibrant city! Our comfortable rental bikes are a great option for first-time visitors to Sicily's capital who want to find their bearings and see all of Palermo's main sights within a few hours. Cycle on the flat roads of the historic city centre or along the seafront, stop at the lively street markets for a gelato or some traditional streetfood (if you're not into spleen sandwich aka pane ca meusa go for the chickpea fritters - pannelle!) and see the impressive Baroque Palazzi pass by while you pedal through the cobbled streets of the car-free centre.

Inspiring Tours in 100% recommendable!!! We were three friends travelling to Sicily in November to cycle from Palermo to Agrigento. Luckily we come across Inspiring Tours in Palermo. They rented us three brand-new gravel bikes in perfect conditions and borrowed us all the necessary equipment (pump, tubes, lights, bottles). They also took care of our luggage every stage and transported it to the accommodation we have booked in advance. Finally they picked the bikes back in Agrigento. On top, of that they gave us interesting remarks for the route. Sicily is a great place to cycle, there are many side roads with almost no traffic and the landscape and food is great.

Thank you very much for your feedback, Pedro! It's been a huge pleasure assisting you with your late autumn biking tour in West Sicily! We'd love to welcome you back to Sicily for another ride next year! A presto, Danuta + Giovanni

While visiting Sicily for a wedding, my cousin and I were able to rent two very new, well-kept, comfortable road bikes for cycling from the Palermo area to Trapani.

The service was perfect. Danuta + Giovanni provided everything we requested (helmets, proper pedals, correctly sized/fit bicycles). They delivered the bicycles to us and picked the bicycles up at our hotel outside of Trapani. Everything worked out perfectly. The bicycles functioned perfectly.

The scenery along the coast between Palermo and Trapani was amazing. There were some relatively challenging climbs that provided beautiful vistas of the sea at the top. We stopped along the road and bought some fruit, beer, mortadella...we saw grapes and olives growing. And then, we experienced some fun descents as we went back down to the coast to end at a beach in Trapani. A really wonderful experience.

I will use this same service on future trips to Sicily. Very good business and nice people.

Myself and my girlfriend rented two bikes for 10 days while on holidays on Sicily. While I was a small bit hesitant before booking, I shouldn’t have been as Danuta was extremely helpful from the beginning until our last day. The hybrid bikes we rented were fantastic and during our 10 day trip, we did not have any issues at all, not even a puncture. The bikes are also very durable and could handle even the toughest roads and trails in Sicily. Even if we were to get into difficulty, Danuta had provided contact details for assistance during our trip. Everything we needed was provided for including a helmet, repair kit and panniers for the bike. I could not recommend Ciclabili Siciliane/Sicily Cycling highly enough to anyone to is interested in cycling tours of Sicily or who just wants to rent a bike for a few days.

We made an amazing bicycle-tour from Catania via Adrano, Nicosia, Petralia Sottana, Parco delle Madonie to Cefalu and from there via Piana degli Albanesi to Palermon. We rented two touring-bikes from Sicily Cycling, which were delivered to Catania. Even if we did not get exactly the type of bikes we had ordered from the homepage, the bikes were in very good condition, almost new, comfortable and we never had any problems with them. The bikes had been delivered directly to the hostel and the mechanic helped us to adjust the bikes and make them ready. It was also very uncomplicated to return them in Palermo. Before renting the bikes we were a bit unsure how it works with the payment, but in the end we simply payed by credit card directly when the bikes were delivered. Alltogether communication was good and the rental simple.

The landscape, the people and the food were great! The only drawback of cycling in Sicily are sometimes dogs running free, garbage along the streets and the car-traffic in towns and cities. However the Siciliani are generally respectful car-drivers and we got used very quickly to the different way of behavior on the streets. Altogether the cycling tour was a great experience, which I would recommend anyone who likes to cycle in hilly to montaneous landscapes.

Many thanks to Danuta and her Team!

I rented a bike from Danuta for four days when I stayed in Mondello. The bike was great (a Trek gravel bike that was a lot of fun to use on the road). The spec on the bike was better than I anticipated and was well maintained, almost new. Danuta gave me everything I needed (helmet, bike lock, lights, and even suggestions on what trips I could do around Mondello). She also made sure that the bike size was correct before we met. Finally, she was super flexible when arranging to met me to deliver the bike and collect it. This was the best bike rental experience I have had, and I'll definitely be going back to Danuta for a bike the next time I'm in Sicily.
I cannot recommend Danuta highly enough.
