    Bike hire in Dordogne region (France)

    The gf and I will be attempting a chilly cycle tour in mid April, in the Dordogne (Périgord) region of France. It would really be nice to hire decent touring bikes, rather than mountain bikes, or (shudder), city bikes, as we're going to be doing 7 days of ~60km per day.

    Anyone know of a place that rents decent bikes? Taking our own (from Australia) is too hard, I think, since we'll be doing other travel either side of the cycle tour.

    I don't have first hand experience with renting from here, but my Lonely Planet Cycling France guide recommends these two places:

    Cycles C7
    Cycles Sarladais

    Have fun! I hope to visit the region in May.
