Performance Road Bike Hire at Livelo London - Providing travelling cyclists with carbon road bike rental at RideLondon
With this weekends RideLondon event taking place on the capital's streets, it was clear to see just how far cycling has come over the past decade in the UK. Over 25,000 cyclists flocking to London to ride the 100-mile route that has recently gained UCI World Tour status on the professional circuit.
For Livelo, RideLondon marked 8 weeks of operation and with all of our bikes out on the course, what better way to celebrate!
8 Weeks of Livelo London
Somehow 8 weeks have passed since we launched Livelo London and it’s been a busy time for the team. Our fleet of Cannondale Supersix Evo bikes have facilitated our clients with over 50 riding days and our team of riders have now completed over 500 kilometres of guided tours.
It’s been a real pleasure to see the initial success of our London location as it meets a demand from cyclists and gets people out riding who may not have been able to otherwise. There’s nothing more rewarding than receiving messages from ecstatic clients, thrilled at the overall experience they have had during their time in London. In many ways, it doesn’t seem fair to take all the credit when it’s the bikes and the incredible local riding that does all the work for us!!
We’ve met people from all over the world, all linked by the common desire to get out on a bike while they have some time in London. Some travel for work, others for pleasure, but all want to ride while they are in England’s capital city… and with so much going on this summer, why not.
Our bikes have now travelled out into the Surrey hills and Epsom downs, sampling the ascents of Box Hill and Leith Hill. Our bikes have spun laps of the majestic royal parks of Windsor, Richmond, Regents, Bushy and Hyde park. Our bikes have competed in the London Triathlon last weekend and this weekend our bikes successfully took on the 100-mile Prudential RideLondon route (with some of our clients posting some impressive times!). Our bikes have even been over to France and up to the Lake District, being put through their paces on the dizzy gradients and standing up to the test.
Behind the scenes we’ve been hard at work setting up our Livelo London depot, finding the right premises from which we can best serve our clients in London. In addition to this, we have been looking at additional services that we can offer to further enrich peoples’ experiences of using Livelo as their ‘Global Bike’. So watch this space.
With the popularity of Livelo London, we have also turned our sights to other European cities with the aim to have several of these live in the coming weeks and months. The opportunity to get out riding and exploring different roads around the world is becoming more and more frequent and easier to take hold of. We see our role clearly as a facilitator in this growing trend and aim to grow to further support cyclists wherever they are in the world.
If there’s a place in the world where you want to see our service, then get in touch. It’s great to hear where you want to ride, and even better when we can make it happen for you…
