To help make your ride an unforgettable experience we have teamed up with some of the best cycling companies around.
Our ride guides and support vehicles use the great tracking features of the Wahoo ELEMNT GPS computer. A wireless GPS bike computer, with easy to access side buttons and large screen displaying all necessary data and route maps.
Wahoo ELEMNT GPS connects with your smartphone, allows you to customize settings and links to your favourite cycling apps and wireless sensors.
Our guides use it to navigate the routes. We also have a unit in our service vehicle, so the driver can always track down location of the group.
British bike brand which debuted in 2001 with the Day One bike under the Ridgeback brand. Due to its snowballing popularity, Genesis broke out in its own right in 2006. Since then it’s bike range has expanded and now includes road, mountain, cyclo-cross, gravel, and kids bikes.
Genesis is well known for their use of steel tubing and an ethos for function over form. It supports a UCI Professional cycling team Madison Genesis, which races on their steel Volare and carbon Zero machines.
We have teamed up with Genesis and have a fleet of their bikes ready for rent.
This Belgian brand, originally Morgan Oils, came to life in 1994 when a former mechanic of the Lotto team asked to produce oil for bikes. After extensive testing of samples, they were fine-tuned and Morgan Oils started sponsoring the Belgian Lotto and French Casino teams.
Soon after their legendary blue chain cleaner was developed and hence Morgan Blue was born. Since then the range of products extended and from 2014 it includes more than 68 items for the bike and the rider.
Everything is made in-house to exacting standards offering the highest level of performance.
Well-known British brand Brooks has been manufacturing with cyclists in mind since 1866. Under their iconic logo you can find their famous leather saddles, still handmade in Europe, as well as a wide range of backpacks, cycling bags, helmets and accessories.
For guests we have a range of Brooks C13 saddles to test on rides.
The C13 utilises the same vulcanised natural rubber and organic cotton top of the Cambium line, yet weighs 150g less than the popular C15 model. This is accomplished through a continuous carbon rail that eliminates performance-resistant contact points and saves weight.
Nutrition and hydration available during a ride contains a variety of food products delivered by Czech brand Chimpanzee. We have tested all of their ranges during numerous trips, rides and adventures and guarantee not only that they taste good, but also deliver all necessary and healthy nutrition needed during any ride.
Chimpanzee is honest, all-natural, hydration and nutrition made from real foods. Free of additives, artificial sweeteners, trans fats, chemicals and GMO’s. Among their bars, chews, powders and gels are options for vegetarians and vegans as well as gluten free riders.
Our rental fleet of Volare 853 have been specially built by Genesis. Its steel frame borrows from the developments of the 953 frame used by the UCI Professional cycling team Madison Genesis.
It features Shimano Ultegra R8000 mechanical groupset with hydraulic disc brakes and a mid-compact crankset (52-36) with a large cassette (11-28). The new Ultegra RS770 carbon-laminate wheels as well as pro PLT seat post, bars and stem complete the build.
Please let us know in advance whether you want to rent a bike. We will be able to give you rental price upon request as well as prepare a suitable bike for you.

Roadventures was certainly on top of the list in terms of personal highlights. Breathtaking landscapes, camaraderie, excellent organisation and lots of laughters made it the perfect trip. I’m hoping to go on another Roadventure in the futureJochen, FranceTatra Mountains June 2016
