We use Trek bikes exclusively on all tours except Camino de Santiago / Lanzarote / Portugal (please request information on bikes used on these tours).
You can either make arrangements to bring your own bicycles or hire IberoCycle's own models. Most airlines will carry bicycles for a small extra charge or even free. Cyclists who choose to hire will be provided with a comfortable quality bicycle to suit their particular measurements and preferences. Too many cyclists on trips with other companies have complained about past experiences where they have had to put up with uncomfortable saddles, the wrong sized bike etc. Measurements are requested on booking so your bike is waiting for you on arrival.We place great importance on getting the right bike for the right person.
You are provided with hybrid-type tourist bicycles from Trek with conventional handlebars and with triple chain ring and easy-to-change gear ratios for comfortable and easy cycling. Trek or Specialized road bikes are also available. We can also provide tandems, which make for great cycling fun, and are also ideal for those with children.

Equipment depends on the tour option chosen Luggage Service or Independent. Cyclists who choose to carry their own luggage will be provided with spacious waterproof panniers fitted on the rear of the bicycle. Those who take advantage of our luggage service will have their bicycles fitted with two lateral panniers with sufficient space to carry what they need for that particular day.
Hybrid bikes will carry a handlebar bag, useful for carrying money, documents, camera and lots of other useful items which may be needed close at hand. This bag is easily removed it from its click fastening and carried around with the shoulder strap. They are also equipped with a rear luggage rack and one or two panniers, or a rear rack bag to carry just what you need for each day's cycling. Road bikes carry a seat post bag if required.
In addition, all cycles are equipped with pump, spare inner tube, water bottle, bike lock and basic toolkit. Extras such as lights or toe clips are available on request. Iberocycle provides cyclists with a fine bicycle in tip-top condition to make cycling an absolute pleasure.
Childrens bikes and child seats are available on request.
