At Antonella's suggestion, she and her husband (and daughter) met us from the train with the bikes. We tried them, and without being rushed at all made necessary adjustments (seat height, putting my pedals on etc..)
When after the next day's ride I needed a change of seat post there was no problem with coming over to our b&b with a replacement.
The bikes were sturdy (sirrus) with racks to take our panniers and pretty much ideal for touring.
We completed about 300 miles around Umbria encountering some pretty hefty climbs and some variable road surfaces! We had no mechanical problems although basic tools and tubes were included in the package (I carried my own mutitool and chain link just in case) I don't doubt that Antonella would have responded quickly to any emergency distress call and in fact made sure we had her mobile number. She was flexible with the bike return time and didn't quibble about my altering the rendezvous when we were delayed.
We could not fault the service provided and would, without doubt, use again if we planned a return trip
Thanks Antonella!

We wanted to do something different, but we're not experienced cyclists and nervous on Italian roads. Antonella met us, took us to the start of a beautiful cycle path and supplied us with top-class bikes for the ride. She speaks excellent English and made sure we had all we needed for our trip. We had a great day out, riding through gorgeous countryside and thankfully all on the flat!
Antonella adjusts her service to suit individual customers and we'd highly recommend her.
