RCC BIKE HIRE

Explore cycling cities around the world with exclusive bike hire from our Clubhouses, brought to you in partnership with OPEN Cycle.

THE WORLD AT YOUR WHEELS

Global bike hire is one of the great perks of Rapha Cycling Club membership. Our new fleet of all-road OPEN U.P. allows you to take on any terrain – road, gravel or city riding – on a bike that’s every bit as good as the one you have at home. And to save you from getting lost, we also provide the best route recommendation in the region when you book.

OUR PARTNERS

Based in Switzerland, OPEN is synonymous with design innovation, and the OPEN U.P. was the bike that started it all. With its lightweight carbon construction and signature dropped chainstay, the U.P. is uniquely versatile – quick and comfortable on the road with go-anywhere capability off it.

Resplendent in signature Rapha Cycling Club colours, all of our framesets are fitted with Campagnolo’s Ekar groupset whose 1x13 delivers smooth and natural gear progressions for the perfect cadence on any terrain. Campagnolo’s renowned braking system ensures reliable speed regulation, while the tyres from Pirelli offer low rolling resistance, high puncture protection and consistent grip wherever you ride.

Please note that some locations will continue to offer Canyon Endurace bikes until our new partner bikes have arrived.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I book?


Bookings are made online, where you’ll be able to see what bikes are available, in which locations. When you collect, you’ll be asked to read and sign the waiver and terms and conditions.

You can find your perfect frame size using the table below:

WIDE XS: > 166cm
UP S: 157 - 170
UP M: 168-180
UP L: 178-191

Can I race this bike?


No. All warranty and damage liability waivers will become null and void. You would be liable for the full price of the bicycle in the case of any damage.

 

Can I rent a bike for friends and family?


You may only hire a bike for yourself to ride.

 

Can I travel with a hired bike?


No, bikes cannot be flown with or taken beyond a reasonable distance of their hire location.

 

What do I need to bring when I pick up my bike?


You will need to present photo ID at the time of hire.
Members must provide their own shoes, clipless pedals, helmet, bidons, lights and any other equipment required to ensure their safety and comfort. We also recommend a saddle bag with a tube, levers and pump.

 

How do I measure my saddle height?


Measure the distance in centimetres between the centre of your crankset and the top of your saddle on your current bike, in the middle of the saddle rails.

 

When can I collect my bike?


You can collect your bike from the designated Clubhouse during opening hours on the first day of hire. Find all Clubhouse opening hours here.

 

How long does it take to collect a bike?


We ask that you allow 30 minutes to collect or return a bike. This allows time to sign the appropriate paperwork, ensure the bike is set up to your preference, and check that everything is in working order.

 

Can I collect early?


Early collection can be arranged in rare circumstances, subject to availability. Adding a day incurs an additional day's hire charge.

 

What happens if a bike is damaged or stolen?


You should contact the Clubhouse immediately in the case of damage or theft. The RCC provides a supplementary damage and theft liability waiver, included in the price of hire. This waiver won’t apply if you breach the terms and conditions of hire. All bikes will be thoroughly inspected upon return. If a bike is returned damaged we will contact you within 48 hours.

 

Can I read the hire terms and conditions before I collect my bike?


Of course, you can find them here.

 

How much notice does a Clubhouse need for bike bookings?


Bookings must be made at least two days in advance. The furthest in advance a bike can be hired is 90 days. At times of high demand, try to book as far in advance as possible to avoid disappointment.

 

How often can I book a hire bike?


Members can book one hire period per 7 days, per Clubhouse. This is to ensure a greater availability of bikes for all members. Multiple bookings within a 7 day period will be cancelled or declined by the Clubhouse.
