Bike Hire Information:

The number one question we get asked regards if an athlete should bring their own bike or hire one.  Some people will want to bring their own as it is the only bike they ride or are most comfortable on it but a lot of our guests will hire due to it being easier to travel and less hassle packing and building bikes.  It really is personal preference but for a week we think hiring is the best option as it makes not only your travel simpler (and less worrying – we do see some bikes damaged in transit) but also your first and last days with us easier as you don’t have to get bikes built/dismantled. It also makes your airport transfer options a lot easier.

To select a bike to hire with our local bike shop partner please click here – their location is ‘location 1’ on their website named Rad- Salon BMC Pro.

When booking please consider the following points:

In the comments/remarks box please put ‘Challenge Tri Camp Attendee’ as this allows the shop to get the bikes ready for our groups.

When booking you will need to give an approximate collection time – this will be the Saturday afternoon between 15.30 and 18.30 or Sunday morning between 09.00 and 11.00.  The collection time will depend on your flight time, if unknown please go for the Sunday morning option.  We will leave time on the training schedules for collection.

A normal hire period would be 6 days as we will use the bike from Sunday mid morning until the Friday afternoon.  You might be arriving early on the Saturday and want the bike to test it out a day early – in which case you can collect it between 09.00-11.00 and 15.30-18.30 on that day.  If so please make sure you hire it from this day.

Knowing the saddle height of your bike at home and/or the frame size will help you in the booking process.

Please consider the bike insurance policy that is offered with your bike rental – this is a cheap price to pay in case of damage to the hire bike.  Please contact the hire shop for all details on this as it varies bike to bike. 

BOOKING EARLY IS ESSENTIAL – All the hire shops get very busy with rentals so it is important to book early to ensure you get the correct size and frame you want.

Challenge Tri Camp is not part of the bike hire shop and although we will do our best to assist you with any issues the bike contract is between you and the hire shop.

ONCE YOU HAVE BOOKED YOUR HIRE BIKE, PLEASE SEND US A COPY OF YOUR BOOKING FORM FOR OUR RECORDS

What if I’m bringing my own bike:

Please make sure you book your bike onto your plane journey (extra costs apply and vary with airlines – maximum price approx £60 each way)

Damages do happen, please make sure you use a good quality bike box to transport your bike, have insurance in case of damage and arrange for airport transfers big enough to accommodate a bike box as well as other luggage.

If you are bringing your own and don’t have a bike box and would like to hire one – please contact us here.

When packing your bike please pay particular attention to the rear derailleur and ensure it is packed safely and cushioned along with the rest of the bike.  Carrying a spare hanger for your bike type is advisable as this is the part that gets broken the most.

Each airline varies on the weight allowed for your bike and box so please check this – the maximum is 32kg but some airlines are lower.  Also carrying CO2 gas canisters is forbidden on most airlines.  These can be purchased in Mallorca.
