All you need to know is that the top range bikes are more reliable due to the materials, like the carbon frame and the first range tyres.
If you are travelling with your family and you want to enjoy the landscape, we advise renting a city bike. Those bikes are easy to ride and comfortable for the streets.
On the other hand, if you want to enjoy the wild side of Sicily, you can choose a Mountain Bike. When riding a MTB you can take offroad routes and have a lot of fun!
Otherwise, if you are a bike passionate and want to enjoy the city routes, you can choose a Road bike.
First of all, it's important to know that the Bike Rental Sicily shops usually rent a bike for a minimum of 2 days. But, there are also many shops that have hour-based rentals or daily plans.

Finally, if you choose a weekly rental, for more than 6 days, you should pay between 20 and 30 euros (per day).
All around the island, there are several bike rentals. Usually, you can stop by and rent your bike. But, especially during the high season, we advise booking your bike in advance.
