We are very pleased to offer a bike hire service for many of the top cycling events we travel to around the World. This means that you'll be able to ride a top of the range bike at our events - without all the inconvenience and cost of flying your bike overseas. Ideal if you are in Europe for a longer trip and only require a bike for a short period of time.
The Scott CR1 Team offers the perfect balance of performance and comfort. Designed to save the rider from shock and vibration created by rough roads, the CR1 is the ideal choice for the enthusiast or racer who wants to enjoy long rides but doesn’t want to feel beat up at the end of the day. The shock damping is so effective that it has even helped racers in the pro peloton tame the dreaded cobbles of Paris-Roubaix
