You’ll need to organise your own bike hire when staying here. Things to consider are the type of bike you want to rent such as road, mountain, hard trail and/or an electric bike; and whether you’ll need helmets and protective clothing with your rental. You’re best off choosing a shop that is close to your accommodation for ease of access, and making it quicker to return the bike and pay at the end. Some companies may also deliver so it’s worth looking at all the options.

- "We recently stayed five days at Hotel de l'Horloge in Avignon and were impressed with the caring staff, accommodations and overall stay here. It's in an excellent location just off the place de l'Horloge but away from the noise of this plaza. We were within walking distance to all the attractions that we wanted to see. The reception area arranged tours, gave information on bus/train service, restaurants, even weather. We will definitely recommend to anyone travelling to this area." - Trip Advisor
