No! We bring your reserved rental bike to you!
This means we’ll ask on forehand at booking, where you stay in Ronda or surrounding. If drop off is too far, or not possible (think about apartments without parking at the door) then we can meet at the Bike Friendly hotel San Francisco in the heart of Ronda.
At Cycleronda our bike rental prices are a standard price all year round, which means we don't take advantage of our cyclist over the busy cycling season. Bike hire normally starts from around 17 euros per day with a hybrid bike (based on a weekly rental). Road bikes are 5 euros more expensive. This also includes all necessary tools and spare parts as well as a map with route descriptions!
We also require a 25% deposit, at time of booking. This is to guarantee that you have your bike ready on the date of arrival and we are sure you’ll really want the bikes.
Yes, you're required to have medical and personal accident cover for our cycling tours. Make sure your insurance policy also covers sports activities abroad and accident cover incase you have to be sent home.
Check also which amount your insurance covers in case of theft of a bike that costs more than 1.000 euros.
Take with you your insurance policy numbers and emergency contact details before leaving your home country.
For UK cliental we recommend that you bring your EHIC card, as this will help reduce the costs of medical services for treatment in the EEA (European Economic Area). Just remember without travel insurance, you can't book a cycling tour with Cycleronda, and the EHIC alone is not sufficient cover.

CLOTHING, TOOLS AND OTHER ACCESSORIES
If your cycling tour is several days long we suggest you pack at least 2-3 pairs of cycling pants and jerseys/tops. We highly advise when riding in Andalusia you bring: sunglasses, sun cream, after sun moisturiser and a white or light coloured cotton bandanna/scarf (to protect your neck from getting sunburnt). If you burn easily, we also advise wearing long sleeved T-shirts/jerseys and full length cycling gloves for maxium sun protection. If your cycling during the winter months we also recommend that you bring waterproof cycling gear.
If you're going off road mountain biking, please bring your own Camelback. Also all of our bikes have standard pedals, therefore you'll need to bring your own clippless pedals, and remember don’t forget your shoes! Finally don't forget your helmet if you prefer to use your own! (we provide helmets for a small extra charge with our rental bikes). In Spain bike helmets are compulsory, therefore all cyclists are expected to wear one.
Some clients prefer to use their own bike over a rental bike, especially if they're training for a race or are professional cyclists. Using your own bike on a cycling tour is quite easy to organise, as we take you AND your bike to Ronda. We prefer to be notified well in advance, incase their is a large group booking. Prices for this transport service are on request.
Always check with your airline or travel agent first, as their conditions may vary when transporting boxed bikes. In some cases you can send your bike ahead of time, normally there is a fee involved, some may not charge, but there is a risk your bike might be delayed a day if there's limited space.
1. organise a bike box or bag (from your local bike shop)
2. deflate the tyres a little
3. lower the saddle
4. turn in the handle bars and pedals
5. use pipe insulation (or similar) to protect the frame.
Note: the smaller the bike box, the more convenient it is to travel and it makes it easier for pick ups!
Cycleronda has it's own professional workshop where we repair and maintain all of our rental bikes, This workshop is not open to public. But we don’t have a bike shop.
Therefore we strongly recommend that you have your own bike serviced before you begin one of our cycling tours; as we don’t do services in our workshop. Remember to pack a rear derailleur hanger. For all major repairs or servicing Cyleronda has preferential servicing at one of the five bike shops in Ronda.
HOTEL, LUGGAGE AND BIKE DROP OFFS
Ronda city’s website (www.turismoderonda.es) has a lot of informative information about accomodation in the Serrania de Ronda. Or see booking.com and airbnb.com.
We do luggage transfers in the area of Ronda, and up to a 50km radius from Ronda. If you require luggage transfers that are further away, it might get very expensive as we'll need to organise this with a local (taxi) driving service.
Ask your starting hotel in (Ronda) to store your luggage (and bike boxes) whilst you’re on tour, as we don’t offer this service.
AIRPORTS AND PICK UPS
Note: As this service is done by a local taxi company, please pay them directly at drop off at your accomodation.
Generally a one way transfer costs 120,00 euros up to four persons.
Malaga airport is the closest to Ronda, and is well serviced by most European countries and UK airports. It's also possible to fly into Sevilla or Jerez de la Frontera, but unfortunetely we don’t offer pick ups from these airports.
