Good morning Lyn,
My wife and I shall be in Le Mans for the first week in September this year and we are having difficulty locating cycle hire.
I wonder if you could give some advice on the availability of cycle hire in the city and, also, whether a hire outlet would deliver to a location about 5 miles to the east of the city?
Many thanks for your help.

It would be great to hear how you get on.
Here's some more options in Le Mans – these have come via the tourist board for Sarthe.
Two bike rental agencies to be recommended:
E-Cycle, 7 boulevard Paul Chantrel, 72000 Le Mans. Tel: +33 (0)2 43 23 25 17 or via www.ecycle.fr/magasin-velo-electrique-le-mans.html
You also can rent bicyles at the Arche de la Nature: Vél’ Nature, 72530 Yvre l’Eveque just outside Le Mans. Tel: +33 (0)2 43 50 38 45 or via www.velnature.fr/
While probably not relevant this trip, Le Mans also has a public bike share program.
For general tourist information, see the Le Mans tourist office and also the Sarthe tourism website, which has this section on bike routes.
I hope that helps.
If it's OK I'll post your question on the site to help other people.
