A reader emailed this week to ask about bike hire in Nantes. Here's our Q&A.
I have had readers previously enquire about bike hire in Nantes and there seem surprisingly few bike rental outlets in Nantes compared to other cities. This seems especially strange given the city's proximity to the Nantes-Brest Canal and as a gateway to the Loire Valley. (I'd be interested to hear from anyone out there who has experience hiring bikes in or around Nantes, and for any other recommended bike hire shops in Nantes.)
Depending on the type of bikes you need/type of riding you're doing, Nantes has a public bike hire scheme, called Bicloo, which may be an option for you.
I hope that helps - it would be good to hear how you get on.
