Fuerteventura

Post by HedgeHopper » Thu Dec 07, 2017 1:21 pm

Anyone know of an off road bike rental place in Fueteventura?, would like to rent a trail/enduro bike for a few days, not at all interested in guided tours.

I hired from these guys about 5 years ago:

Not strictly offroad bikes, but there are loads of light dirt tracks/roads in the south of the island that you can access and the "mountain" roads running up the west/centre of the island are well worth having something 500cc plus for! It's a great place for riding - have fun! :D

Cheers Both:
Gary, I'm afraid those links are tours or dead ends

Mudfing, yea I rented a 650 road bike from that guy last year, great for the roads, they have some luvvly twisties up the mountains, but not what I'm after this time.

Looks like I'll stick to the mountain bike , thanks for the replies though.

Another option maybe (don't know if flights/accom are already booked), I rented a dirt bike in lanzarote - and took the ferry over to fuerteventura one year, don't remember the company name but they were fine with me taking it on the ferry (30 min trip) and I remember they had a beta alp and a wr250 for rent (I think).

I think this company are British- why not contact them beforehand & ask if they can sort it for you?- they have a good reputation

It might be Blue Speed, I hired their Beta Alp in may this year and rode trails all over the island

I’m enroute to Fuerteventura (Corellejo) this morning, so if I spot anything likely to be suitable I’ll post the details
