Biking Butler service

Welcome to our new Biking Butler service


We are increasingly getting asked to offer a full support package for our clients. Our Biking Butler service gives you the opportunity to ride the routes you have always wanted to but have found the logistics a bit of a pain. We are now offering to make that all the easier so that all you have to do is turn up and enjoy your adventure!

Instead of taking a package that many of the companies offer, you are now free to go where ever you want, whenever you want without having to lug all your gear on heavy panniers.

Facebook review from John

col d'Izoard French Alps

A very belated thank you for looking after Ion and I in the Alps this July. Your constant care and attention meant we could get on with enjoying the spectacular climbs safe in the knowledge that you would be at the top with extra layers, dry jersey, snacks, drinks or lunch. You took care of our bags and made a genuine Alpine tour possible. You ensured we wanted for nothing. I hope we can do it all again next year!

So what does the Biking Butler service offer and why have we called it that? Well its simple, we provide you with all the support you need to complete your day's ride. Ever wanted to feel like a Pro cyclist and have your water bottles taken off you and refilled without having to stop on an iconic alpine like the passo del Stelvio ascent? Well, no problem! Our team is there to look after your every need. So, what do you get?

  • Aiport pickups and dropoffs, if required

  • Bike tools and mechanical knowledge to help you if you have a problem

  • A must have cycle accessory: a van to support you, to carry all the cloths equipment you may want on your ride so there is no need to carry a pocket full of snacks, tubes etc

  • Lunch, snacks and drinks provided to ensure you keep yourselves topped up

  • Your day bags will be easily accessible if the weather turns or you need your sun cream topping up.

  • Baggage transfer of your overnight bags and bike boxes to the next hotel, if required.

  • Local Knowlege and help planning routes

  • Minibus close by in case your legs give out
