We rented bikes for our group of 4 adults for 5 days. We were able to take the train from Paris and pick up our bikes as we walked from the train station to our hotel. Florian and Cedric helped us choose a cycling route, every day, that suited our needs. Whether we only had a couple of hours to ride or a whole day, they would give us a detailed map to explore a new castle, town, vineyard, picnic spots,etc. They would check over our bikes for any little maintenance issues like tire pressure, gear adjustments, chain lube, etc.
Previously, we have always gone on bike tours with guided companies and this was the first time we tried organizing our own bike trip. This was definitely the way to go as the bikes were better and staying in one hotel left us with more time to ride and explore the beautiful region. We would highly recommend spending an entire week based in Beaune.

This is definitely the best way to see the vineyards through Burgundy and this is the best place to rent bikes in Beaune. The owner was super helpful and attentive and made sure we were all prepped for our ride. The bikes were in wonderful condition and the wine tasting recommendations were great! On top of that we had the best lunch on route thanks to their great recommendation. It made our trip truly memorable.

My wife and I rented bikes to go do a day ride. They provided good bikes at a reasonable cost. They gave good service. It was fast to get the bikes and get going. They provided a day pack w/each bike. Helmet rental is 1E more pp. They gave us a route map to follow that was a nice day ride. It's just a little tricky getting out of town to the trail, but we managed fine after one wrong turn (our fault). I would definitely recommend them and use them again if I were in the area. They are what we wanted for a bike rental shop/service. And when it rained on us most or our ride, they offered some good advice to alter our travel plans so as to avoid more rain -- and that was above-and-beyond kind of service/advice. Thanks, guys!

We booked our bikes online and were asked for our heights so that appropriate sized bikes were reserved. We had 3 children with us, 1 was a novice bike rider, so we asked for a piccolo ie. a mini bike attached to an adult bike which worked fine. The owner was friendly and made sure we were comfortable with our bikes, adjusted heights of our seats etc. Each bike came with a spare inner tube and tyre pump.

It was a great way to explore the vineyards and the weather was excellent. We rode from Beaune till Pommard and stopped at one of the wineshops to rest. Once you get out of Beaune, the route was pretty much traffic free, especially if you were riding along the lanes between the vineyards.

Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time to carry on to Volnay as we got into Beaune from Dijon only around noon because of the train strike (trip was done mid-june). The bike shop closes for lunch from 12 to 1.30pm, so we collected our bikes only after a scrumptious lunch at Tontons. Would recommend planning for a full day to get the most out of the experience.

Just an incredible run bike shop just in between the train station and the center of town. They could not have been more friendly and accommodating to a couple of New Yorkers. My fiancee and I both received great bikes along with locks and baskets. The service was just incredible. We went to the store in early afternoon and the owner gave us great bikes with a great deal. He gave us recommendations about wineries to visit and areas of Beaune to check out and great restaurants.

Couldn't possibly recommend any higher. A great shop!
