Rentals

Performance Road and Cross Bikes

Timberline Adventures partners with Specialized, an industry leader and innovator in performance road and cross bikes, to provide rental bikes for our cycling tours. Bikes in our fleet combine traditional performace with an innovative design and geometry that focuses on optimum comfort, reducing the fatigue sometimes associated with long, challenging days in the saddle. We continually upgrade our bikes to provide as carefree an experience as possible. We provide a full range of both men’s and women’s models and sizes, including flat handle bar styles and less common sizes. We’ve included a recommended size chart, but you may also want to visit a local Specialized Dealer to confirm the size you’ve chosen will fit your needs. Fo our men’s road bikes, we offer the Secteur. For the women’s road bikes, we offer the Dolce. For the flat bar bikes, we offer the Sirrus and the Vita in smaller sizes.

All rental bikes are also equipped with an anatomical touring saddle. We urge those who are accustomed to their own saddles to bring them along (without seat post) and we can also exchange your saddle for ours on your rental bicycle. Rental bicycles are equipped with odometers, pumps, tire irons or patch kits. Our tour leaders are veterans of countless wheel repairs and eagerly look forward to every opportunity to demonstrate their speed and adroitness in the event that you experience a flat along the way. All of these comments and suggestions are intended to ensure and enhance your comfort with our bicycle on tour. If you have any questions whatsoever about rental equipment, please don’t hesitate to contact us prior to the tour so that we can provide the bicycle that will best fulfill your particular needs.

Select the rental option when registering and the cost will be added to your balance statement due 30 days before the tour departure date
