Our History

In 2006 Paul Erickson , a Canadian cyclist who was visiting Provence and who soon would become a great friend, stopped at our shop La Route du Ventoux in Bédoin ,  and offered us to create a website in Canada to promote our bike rental service , which Paul thought, would be of great interest for avid cyclists from all over the world looking for good quality bicycles to rent. That's how France Bike Rentals started.
