Decent bikes with ultegra groupsets and 34/32 lowest gear which came in handy when the terrain got really steep or the legs were empty. Good bunch of people in the store. Although as a matter of courtesy I advise you get any business done well before 1330 when they close for siesta as you are keeping another cyclist from his/her... More

I hired a carbon rad bike for one day at Meta Bike Cafe. The service was good (I could return the bike the next morning for no extra charge), the price very honest and so was the bike itself. But once I hit the road I immediately felt a bump in the wheel that became very annoying and uncomfortable at... More

I went on a family holiday and I can recommend the Guided Bike Tour as a great way of getting out on the bike for a ride without taking up too much of the family holiday. Terry was very knowledgable and the bike was superb. The ride was thoroughly enjoyable and I was made to feel very welcome. The online... More

I've just returned from Benidorm and have to comment on the Meta Bike Cafe hire service. The choosing, booking, hiring and paying the deposit over the Internet is really easy and convenient. The bikes for hire are absolutely top notch and are ideal for either road or off road (In the past I've hired both road and mountain bikes). The... More

Start of holiday season so booked a quick 'cheapie' week to Bendorm during the school holidays. Decided to hire a couple of MTB's for 3 days but wanted decent models as I do a fair bit of riding in the UK. Chose Meta Bike Cafe at Albir (just outside Bendorm) 10 euros in taxi from our hotel. Really easy to... More
