Rent a bike

We have partnered with Bicicletas la Estación, located at Calle Molinos, #20, in Granada's city center. In addition to their broad range of rental bikes, we've found their customer service to be exceptional, which is one of the reasons we've chosen to work with them. Another reason to rent from Bicicletas la Estación is that English is spoken there. Each of the buttons below links to their website where you can find detailed information about their rental bikes.

Each rental includes helmet and repair kit. Additional items available for rent include GPS units, panniers, handlebar mount for smartphones, and child seats. To request a rental bike, you can fill out the form below and your request will be emailed directly to Bicicletas la Estación.
