We have tried to choose bike models that will suit as many requirements as possible.
HYBRID - We like hybrid bikes as the combination of 700 wheels and thinnish tyres plus a light frame and flat bars make for a very enjoyable riding experience in our opinion. We have GIANT FCR’s, Ridgeback, Cannondales and various others.
MOUNTAIN - We have a couple of mountain bikes for those who might like to cycle up the forestry track to Saurdal or above Vansgnes, but the area around Balestrand does not have special mountain bike trails. If you are a full on mountain biker we would advise you to look at other areas.
ROAD BIKES - We have a few road bikes that are for special request/holiday only. GIANT Defy Advanced 4, Shimano 105, carbon frame, Jamis Endura 3, Shimano Ultegra, carbon frame and GIANT Defy, Shimano 105, carbon fork. Having one of Norway’s National Tourist Routes (Gaularfjell), on our doorstep is a great asset and one we are sure road cyclists would enjoy.
OTHER - We also have an assortment of other bikes that should suit someone who is not interested in any of the above. We understand that for some on the bike and hike holiday the bike may not be of so much interest, as the priority may be hiking in the mountains. We will endeavour to fit you up with a bike that you will be happy to ride as, whatever your level, the main point of cycling is to enjoy it.
GENERAL STUFF - The bikes are mostly equipped with Shimano gears, typically Sora, Deore/XT,105,Tiagra and some SRAM X7. All bikes come with helmet, reflective vest, bell, drink holder, lock, lights if needed. Racks fitted where possible. The lock should be used any time you leave the bike unattended.
