Had a wonderfull week of road riding with my wife. Thanks for the great Cannondale rental bikes & route support!
We hired 2 race bikes and 1 e-bike. Excellent bikes, well prepared. Excellent service in the shop. Friendly staff
We hired 5 bikes for a week. The bikes were ready and waiting and set up for the individual rider. The bikes were in excellent condition and performed perfectly for the week.
Excellent and friendly service, thanks....... Phil
Ich habe es sehr genossen mit euch diese drei Touren zu machen. In der kleinen Gruppe von 4-5 Fahrern (und unsere finische Fahrerein) haben wir zuerst die alte Landstraße auf der East Coast, danach den Teide West und zum Abschluss die fantastische Masca Runde gemacht. Besonders hat mir gefallen, dass die großen Leistungsunterschiede, ich war immer der letzte mit meinen 61 Jahren, wunderbar aufgefangen wurden und jeder seinen Spass hatte. Ich kann nur jedem empfehlen, der Sorge hat, er sei nicht gut genug, es mit dem Tenerife Team zu probieren. Du wirst nicht enttäuscht und bekommst ein super Radsporterlebnis. Nicht zu vergessen, die ausgesucht guten "tourifreien" Lokale zum Abschlusslunch waren ihr Geld mehr als wert. Man müsste mehr Zeit haben als nur eine kurze Woche.
Great tours, great Manager (Hans) and staff and great service and bikes. Could not have been better.
I recently hired a Specialized Roubaix which was ready for me when I arrived to collect it and was well serviced. All the staff, the woman on reception and the mechanics were very helpful and suggested an alternative to the route I had planned, they clearly put the customer at the heart of their business. The shop was immaculately clean and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience there. I fully recommend them to anyone wishing to hire a bike in Tenerife. Thanks very much, I will see you again next season.
I rode with Free Motion last year on Grand Canary so was pleased to see the recent expansion of the business to include additional centres and new locations. The Tenerife Centre is in a great location alongside Tenerife Top Training, used as a base for a variety of international sporting teams. Free Motion do over reference this a bit in their marketing package which, combined with the provision of 'sport' and sport xl' tours and the omission of the 'hobby' level tours provided in Grand Canary may just some people off. It certainly made me think twice, and Ive been before! Suffice to say there should be NO concern here for the average cycling enthusiast/weekend warrior/Mamil. If you have decided you are fit enough to take on trips of 45 to 65 kms with up to 1650m of climbing the team at Free Motion will ensure you not only survive the trip, but actually enjoy it, which is surely the intent?
I took both tours on a rented Specialised Roubaix Disc. We had a support vehicle, and riding guides on both (sport) rides with regular stops, meeting points and carefully controlled decent's. Transport out of 'town' does improved the quality and safety of the ride, but does also increase the time taken especially as transport back to the FM Centre is provide after the included Lunch. Transfer back to the hotels may have to wait until everyone has finished 'shopping' for shirts/bibs etc so don't count on returning for an afternoon by the pool. Both days I got back around 1600 after an 0830 pick up. Free Motion could be a little more descriptive in the detail of the tours to give this information for people needing to plan/integrate the family activities with the bike tours. They should also calm down/moderate the 'pro' marketing a little so as not to frighten off us more moderate performers. -Both of my tours included one lady on an e-bike accompanying her (very) committed husband. She beat me to both summits and thoroughly enjoyed the rides. This is not mentioned in any of the ad's. My wife on notice for the next trip! :-)
Lastly a big thank you to Hans, the tour Manager and lead guide, Mo his intern assistant, (good luck in the triathlon series this year,) and the Centre staff for looking after us so well. Excellent knowledge, advice and logistics. They simply can not do enough for you, whatever your level!
I liked it so much...I bought the bike I rode last year and got a great deal.
Very Happy Customer.
My original plan was to rent a bike, do most of my tours by myself, and perhaps do a tour or two with Free Motion Tenerife. But I ended up doing 5 tours with them because the experience was so great.
As a bike rental company, they come across as very competent and professional. They have a great selection of new bike models from premium brands. No problem getting your own gear installed (Power meter pedals etc.) on the bikes. Personally, I rode the Specialized Roubaix 2017 which I liked a lot.
But even more importantly, they are a great bike tour company. There are many great roads and climbs on Tenerife, but they are harder to come by, than f.ex. on Mallorca. Staying in south of Tenerife you have to deal with traffic hassles to get to the great roads. Free Motion takes the stress totally out of the logistics with their pickup service and their detailed knowledge of roads and climbs on the island.
Moreover, they have great guides (Hans being the main guide, but also Julien and Mo) with their emphasis on everybody having fun and staying within their capabilities (in terms of safety). The lunch at the end of the ride is always great.
I can only recommend Free Motion both as a bike rental company and as a bike tour operator.
Special thanks to the Team at Free-Motion Costa Adeje, Chris, Laura, Hans, Pablo and Mo! My husband Robert and I enjoyed two cycling tours in January, Masca and El Teide, from being pickup by smiling Hans in the morning, meeting your fellow cyclists to being dropped off in the evening you knew you were going to be in safe hands!
The choice of bikes to rent at Free-motion is amazing........all top names, its a great way to try out a variety of road/off-road and e-bikes before you buy. All road and e-bikes bikes for the tour were preloaded onto a trailer in readiness for us all arriving, so there was no delay in us getting on our way!
We chose e-bikes as we haven't cycled in Tenerife before and wanted to be able to enjoy the hill climbs and take in the wonderful Tenerife landscape, Hans and Mo were very knowledgeable about the areas, if we had decided to tour ourselves we would of had to stayed on the main routes, whereas Hans and Mo took us down many side roads which made it more enjoyable, it was great to have a support vehicle as the weather was mixed, so additional clothing was put on and taken off a few times!
At the end of an enjoyable 4 hour ride, a typical Canarian lunch awaited, everyone was famished, it was great for cyclists of different levels to enjoy lunch together and have camaraderie, we have taken home great memories of our tours, looking forward to more tours in 2018! Thanks Free-Motion (Costa Adeje) x
I had 2 wonderful cycling days. Nice scenery on the island, great roads, nice climbs, sun and typical local lunches. Hans van den Broeck is good companionship and a super guide on the island. Also a great choice in road bikes.
