Bicycle Hire Canal Du Midi

 

One of the most important parts of a bicycle tour is the bicycle.  Oddly enough, too many bike touring companies use old and uncomfortable bikes!  We, at Relax Bike Tours, on the contrary, believe that top quality products are best for both our clients and ourselves.  Our bikes are perfect for cycling along the Canal Du Midi.

 

All bikes are regularly maintained and cleaned, and undergo a thorough inspection after and before each rental period.

 

All our bikes come with a handy saddle bag containing a complete repair kit including glue-less inner tube patches.

 

Optional equipment free of charge and on demand: steering wheel bags, locks, yellow vests, panniers, helmets, etc.

 

***Many people like to bring along their own saddle, cycling shoes and pedals. Please inform us if you intend to do so.

VTC GIANT ASPIRO RS4 TOURING BIKE

 

The "do it all" touring bike.

 

Ideal for cycling the entire Canal du Midi, from Toulouse to Sète, or for our other Languedoc cycling tours.

 

Aluminum frame to keep weight down; chain guard and mud guards to keep you clean.  Adjustable front suspension fork (SR Suntour NEX 4110) and a soft comfort seat to smooth out the road.  Each bike is equipped with wide dual-purpose Schwalbe Marathon Plus Tour puncture resistant tires (700x40C).  Of course we do strongly suggest you avoid running over glass and other sharp objects as no tire is puncture-proof!  These tires also have reflective strips on them for added night time security.

 

The gearing is excellent on these bike. The lowest gear is low enough to do some serious climbing.  Front: 28/38/48.  Back: 14x34.  Thus, with 28 teeth on the front and 34 on the back (the lowest gear setting), you have an amazing gear-inch ratio of 22, which is about as low as you can get!  Full Shimano gearing of course for added durability and reliability.
