Owner description: Bicycle rental and self guided bicycle tours from Castelnaud. We have many different types of bikes including town bikes, mountain bikes, tandems, electric bikes, all sizes of children's bikes and various trailers for children starting from 18months (or less with some safe ingenuity). All accessories (anything without wheels) are free with the rental, including the child seats. Our shop in Castelnaud is at the start of the best cycle path in the region, along the Ceou River Valley, and it passes through several little hamlets on its way to Daglan where you can freshen up with drinks, ice creams, or lunch. This is a pleasant ride for all the family, and it is downhill all the way back to the shop at Castelnaud. You can of course choose from a great number of other circuits and we can supply a pocket map to help you get around. You can't buy your picnic from us, but we do sell cold drinks. Ask us to deliver your bikes to your accommodation if you wish to rent for several days, the delivery may even be free. Other services include a full repair shop for all makes of bike, a call out service for mobile repairs, and bike sales all year round.

Hired a bike from Joel last week whilst visiting Sarlat, and I can't speak too highly of him. Straightforward, down to earth and efficient about sums up his operation. Arranged everything with one phone call, he brought the bike to the hotel, exactly to my requirements, no problems !! Joel's also a bit of a character, unusual these days, and much appreciated !!

We arrived expecting a pleasant ride through local villages, yet we were blown away by such a fantastic tour. Highly recommended for all levels of fitness and skill, tour guide was very experienced, friendly and spoke good english as a bonus. The perfect way to explore Dorogne if you want to get away from the tourists and see the real beauty if the area.

Would recommend Bike bus highly. Joel is straightforward and easy to deal with. He delivered road bikes to our hotel as scheduled. They were high quality with ultegra gearing and well maintained. Routes and tips were given freely and with a strong commitment to ensuring that we had a great experience. He did not put a foot wrong. This is a tremendous place to cycle. Ok there are hills but the gradients are relatively benign. The traffic was minimal..in early may. The country side and the villages are all picture perfect..and the restaurants and bars of Sarlat for the evening top it off. Will return

Joel provided us with excellent modern road bikes correctly geared for the hills. He provided a good service and ensured that the bikes fitted us properly.

I would use Joel if I am ever cyvling in the area again.
