Florence by Bike rented me a great high-end bike (Carbon DeRosa) for my three days of guided tours with Mark Collins (Riding with Cosimo). The bike was in good shape and they checked it out and did minor tweaks daily. The friendly staff was patient with my lousy language skills and they spoke English well. The arrangements made ahead of... More

Hello! I think you were very lucky, and I am glad you found all lovely persons who were willing to help you! Unfortunately no insurance company would insure a race bike here in Italy, and we always suggest to stay with the race bike rented every single second! I am glad no disaster occurred, and extremely happy that you had... More

We did a self-guided 3 week Tuscan bike trip. After reading many other reviews and consulting with bike enthusiasts in Florence, it was clear very quickly that Florence by Bike is the ONLY shop in Florence with the range and quality of gear for our needs. We recommend them highly for their service, gear and advice. They could not have... More

Came here after trying a shop up the road who was unhelpful and seemed very dodgey (don't go there). The guys here were really friendly and even plotted a route we should take up the mountain which was a great ride. 100% recommend!!

I hired a road bike for 2 days in June 2016. The staff were very helpful and made up for my totally inadequate Italian with excellent English.
