What you can expect of us
Bikes for the Trail and Albany Cycling Holidays - What you can expect of us.
We supply quality, sturdy, reliable, late model mountain bikes with front suspension and disk brakes.
We supply high quality water proof panniers to carry gear and include maps, odometer, tool kit, pump and some essential spare parts.
The south coast is our home and we have travelled these routes many times. We are happy to share our experiences to fit your requirements. We offer advice and planning on itineraries for any length of tours with routes and detours to get the most out of your time spent on the bike. We are very happy to devise an itinerary to suit your interests (e.g. swimming, wine tasting, tourists attractions) and can cater to differing comfort requirements , bike riding fitness and time constraints. Between Albany and Walpole, there is a range of accommodation options varying from camping to the simple to the luxurious.
Maps - We supply a single copy per group of the relevant maps for the Munda Biddi trail. If you require more copies these can be purchased at the Albany Tourist Bureau. Maps for other locations can be organised by arrangement.
Panniers - We supply 'Ortleib' back roller panniers that are reliably waterproof. In our experience, these panniers can carry all that is required for long trip with a tent and mattress strapped on top. We do have a limited number of ortleib 'rack pack' hold alls available for hire. These additional waterproof storage bags attach to the top of the panniers. We do not supply handlebar bags or front panniers.
Helmets - We supply good quality helmets but many people like the comfort and security of their own.
Shoes and pedals - Platform pedals are standard on our bikes. If you prefer clip in footware, you will need your own shoes and pedals.
Saddles - We supply stock saddles but bringing your own will ensure your own comfort and this is perhaps your best insurance against saddle sores.
Tool kits - We supply a multitool and puncture repair kit. For Munda Biddi travellers, we supply a spare derailleur hanger, spokes and chain links.
We are available through email or phone to assist as best we can with any difficulties you may experience but be aware that some tracks are out of mobile phone range and on these you will need to be self-sufficient.
