Bike hire at Carantec Tourist Office

Bike hire srvice all year round

The ’Maison du tourisme’ is extending its bike hire service across the Carantec area in partnership with le Roch Velen Loisirs Verts.
Up until now, visitors passing through the region could enjoy the pleasures of cycling thanks to the Morlaix tourist Office (found in Place Charles de Gaulle in Morlaix) and, in the summer season, could also head to the Tourist Information Point in Plounéour-Ménez. As from Easter 2012, the service will also be on offer at Carantec Tourist Office.

To each his (or her) own

In order to adapt to different requirements, there are 5 models of bike available.

  • Town bikes,
  • Mountain bikes known as VTT (vélos tous terrain),
  • Town and country bikes called VTC (vélos tous chemins),
  • Electrically-assisted bikes, called VAE (vélos à assistance électrique).

Here in Carantec, we like to spoil our families a little - the resort has been awarded the label of Famille plus after all - so the Tourist Office also offers children’s mountain bikes for ages 6 to 12 years, child seats (for chldren 9 to 20kg) and a kiddy trailer (to carry a maximum weight of 32kg).

Each bike hire also includes a safety vest, a bike helmet, pump and repair kit, to cater to any little incidents along the way.

Adapting to your needs

Currently, we have 12 bikes available to hire, but should additional bikes be needed, our partnership with bike provider le Roch Velen Loisirs Verts means that we can always get hold of extra bikes and adapt to provide the bikes that are needed.
Bike hire is possible during the opening hours of the Tourist Office (which are, until the end of June, 9.30 - 12.30 and 2pm - 5.30pm).

Always with an eye to being flexible with regard to potential demand, our bike hire options are set on a scale starting from one hour including everything from 2 hours to half a day to three days or a whole week.

Amembership card priced 75 euros is available to those who wish to reserve a bike over a longer period - such as 12 half-days for VTC, VTT abd town bikes, or 6 half-days for electric bikes. We also offer group rates should you require them.
