Mary emailed to ask about electric bike hire for Alpe d'Huez. Here's what I came up with.
You can post your own cycling in France questions on our Facebook page or email them to me at [email protected]
Quick question: Where can I rent a power assist /electric bike near Alpe d'Huez? We are bringing non-cyclists to France but want them to experience the wonderful climbs.
I hope you are well and cycling much.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I wrote back:
They don't have them on their website but I understand Cycle et Sports have electric bikes for Alpe d'Huez. Will at Bleach Xtrem Sports also has them – Gill at Chateau d'Oz uses Will for her guests' bike hire and recommends his service (he speaks English).
Try them first – if you get stuck, come back to me and I'll see who else has them.
You can check the map below for cycling accommodation in the Alps, or you can browse my recommendations here.
