Rent a bicycle for your holiday in the Aude – and have it delivered to your gite!
Mellow Velos is a terrific idea. They rent bicycles in the Aude. That in itself is good news. They also deliver them to your gite, hotel, or B&B. That’s fabulous news. They describe themselves as a ‘cycle hire company’, I’m guessing that’s Brit for ‘bike rental company’.
My brother is a keen cyclist, he has a road bike and a mountain bike. He usually comes to visit me in the late spring and spends a lot of time cycling in the Val de Daigne in the Corbieres. On my not so terrific bike. I’ve tried to rent a bike for his stays but never found anyone who rents before July. And they stop renting in September. I wish I’d known about Mellow Velos last year. I could have rented a decent bike for him. He had thought about bringing one of his own bikes but the cost to bring his bike from Vancouver to Toulouse was more than the airfare.
There is so much terrific cycling in the Aude; it’s a perfect way to explore. There are enough flat places that anyone can ride a bike here. My bike riding mantra is "I can always walk the bike up hills" and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who cycles this way.
If you’re planning a vacation in the Aude and would like to do some cycling contact Mellow Velos. They even give you a number to call if you need help. Brilliant!
