Bike rental
in Italy

Italy Cycling's bike services will make your holiday unforgettable.

Since our inception, in 2008, we took bike rental service to the next level. We're operational in the most beautiful regions for cycling and offer you a large selection of brand new Canyon bikes.

As cyclists, we walked in our guest shoes to really make the difference in all the single steps of your rental experience. How? You won't have to deal with local shops (where nobody speaks your language) to fight for an available bike at crazy prices. We have almost all bikes available everywhere or, if you don't see them available, we can make them available on request (send us an e-mail). 

We provide you with an efficient experience when you're still at home:

  • An intuitive booking engine that shows availability of bikes for each location;
  • A simple booking process and a choice of payment options: credit card, bank transfer, PayPal;
  • A complete fleet of new bikes from Canyon, with the same standard of maintenance in all rental shops;
  • Qualified staff who will help you choose the right size for you;
  • Ride suggestions for any level;
  • Customer service and support in English (also in French or German) throughout the rental period;
  • A selection of accessories (pedals, helmets, stand pump and much more) available in the catalog;
  • A friendly staff that knows your needs and will help you getting the best out of you bike holiday;
  • After your rental, you can purchase your next Canyon bike with free shipping.

There would be many more reasons to rent with us, but we would need too much space!

How to rent a bike with Italy Cycling

Italy-Cycling has offices in some of the best cycling areas in Italy: take a look at the bicycle catalog and you can easily assess the availability of bicycles for your selected location.

Remember that for long-term bookings we can move bicycles between shops, even between different regions of Italy. So if your rental is not scheduled for next week (or tomorrow) and you haven't found the bike that's right for you in the catalog, email us your request (providing all relevant information, such as dates, locations, sizes, and models) and we'll quickly tell you if we'll be able to provide the bike you want.

We welcome guests without a reservation: however, we cannot assure availability of a model or size without a reservation.

We also work B2B with top international tour operators who rely on our bike fleet and professionalism to render better service to their clients.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept payment methods that guarantee security and convenience for the customer. Credit Card, Bank Transfer and PayPal are all gladly accepted. In the case of payment by bank transfer, we just ask that the wired amount is net of any exchange fees or bank commissions that the bank may apply.  

What is included in the bike rental?

Bikes are equipped with two bottle cages (our full suspention MTBs only have one bottle cage mount), a pump, a repair kit with an inner tube and tire levers. Rental bikes are supplied without clip pedals (these must be chosen and rented separately, or you can bring your own). Alternatively, and at no additional cost, we provide standard pedals. 

Is a deposit required to rent a bike?

As a form of self-protection against damage to the bike, and as with car rentals, the card details will be checked by communicating with the bank to which it belongs and performe a pre-authorization.

This transaction will temporarily block a certain amount (see below). When checking in the bikes, our Staff will check the bikes together with you. If everything is OK, the pre-authorization amount will be released immediately. 

Deposit by bike category:
- Aluminum road bike: €200
- Carbon road bike: €300
- Mountain bike: €200
- Touring bike: €200

Can I get the rental bike delivered to the place where I will stay in Italy?

Bicycle delivery is a service that is provided locally and depends on the capacity of our local staff. Usually the answer is that we deliver within a reasonable distance from our shops. It is not a service that can be sold through booking engine, like rental: it requires logistics and planning. If you need your bicycle delivered, contact us with all the details of the delivery and we will do our best to make it happen.

The delivery service starts from your nearest bicycle center. There is a delivery charge depending on the distance to the nearest bike center.

So far, we have managed to fulfil over 99% of delivery requests.

What's the cancellation policy for the bike rentals?

We have a large bike fleet, however we also get a large number of reservations and need to ensure each customer gets the specific model they request. In light of these challenges it is necessary to apply cancellation terms to bike rentals. They follow the same scheme as the travel policies:

Days before rental
Cancellation penalty
90+ €30 of administrative expenses
89-31 30% deposit per bike
30-0 100% of the cost of the rental

In the event of cancellation without full or partial refund, you may use 50% of the payment for a subsequent trip within one year of the cancelled rental.

My vacation location is far from the bike center or bike stores, how can I deal with the unexpected?

For long vacation stays, and for those who stay far from the bike center or bike stores (which is very common in Italy) we provide, upon request, a Cycling Pack that contains the following items:

- 1 water bottle
- 3 inner tubes
- 1 spare tire
- 3 energy gels

There is a 50 euro deposit on the Cycling Pack. When the bike is returned, the cost of used or unreturned items will be deducted from the deposit.

Prices for items in the cycling package are as follows:
- water bottle: € 5
- inner tubes: € 5 each
- spare tire € 27
- energy gels: € 2.5 each.

If equipment is returned unused, you will be refunded your entire deposit.

Are the bikes insured against theft or damage?

Unfortunately, Italian insurance companies will not cover the theft or damage caused to the bikes. Bicycle theft is rare here but we do have locks available for you to use. For customers who wish to further protect themselves from these eventualities, we suggest the subscription of a travel insurance policy in their country of origin.

We have (so far) four offices accross Italy. Contact us via email, call us or drop by.
