Niels emailed from Denmark to ask about bike hire in Souillac near the Lot and Dordogne border area of south-west France. Here's what I came up with.
I have mailed to several different companies with our bike hire request but have unfortunately I did not got a useful response. From three companies I did not even get a response.
Never mind. I got a recommendation from Cyclomundo to contact you for advice. As you see from my enquiry attached, we want to start in Souillac and end in Souillac six days later. Would it be possible to hire bikes from a company operating in Souillac or near to?
Would it also be possible to arrange transport from Blagnac airport to Souillac?
I would be very thankful if you could help me with this enquiry.

However I have just spoken to Simon Martin, who runs Velo du Lot, a bike hire firm in the Lot Valley. He is able to help you out.
For accommodation in the area, see this page – Souillac is so close to the Dordogne area that you will find many wonderful places to cycle and stay around there. See this page for Dordogne ideas and this page for the Lot Valley itself.
Have a lovely time in France.
