Hi, I'm organising a cycle trip in Puglia in September. We are thinking of staying at two or three centres, hiring bikes and doing 50-80 km day rides. We would prefer hybrid or light touring bikes - but would consider lightweight bikes too.

I've found the following hire sites on-line

Southern Visions
Veloce ... nt_17.html
Cycle Hire Puglia ... re-puglia/
Bikes in Lecce-Salento ... ce-salento
Bike Rental Plus ... boot-heel/

Has anyone had experience of these (good or bad) - or any others that they would recommend?

Thanks Kirby

    Can't help on the shops but have a great trip. I was in Puglia last year, it's stark and lost in time, reminds me of the Algarve 50 years ago! Relatively flat, it shouldnt tax your legs too much.
