The Bikes

Storck Aernario Disc 20th Anniversary Edition

The Storck Aernario is currently one of the highest performance bicycles on the market.

Markus Storck has won multiple design awards, and applies an ultra high level of advanced technical experience and passion to make his bikes the lightest, stiffest and yet most comfortable available.

The 20th anniversary frame is limited to 200 pieces worldwide and with 9 of those at Peligoni, this is the opportunity to ride a unique and special bike in a fantastic location.

Whether you are an experienced racing cyclist or a complete novice the Storck will offer you a memorable cycling experience of exceptional quality and performance.

Our bikes have been provided by Spokes of Bagshot who have upgraded the bikes to electronic gearing. Shimano Ultegra Di2 offers extremely precise and reliable gear shifting and is very low maintenance, meaning you can just jump on board the bike and enjoy the magical scenery of the island. The hydraulic disc brakes give the rider enhanced control and confidence on long descents.

Mountain Bikes

We have a brilliant selection of mountain bikes to be rented for guided rides up in the hills. Helmets are provided and these tours can be tailored with the ability of the rider in mind.

The Giant Stance

The Club has 6 Giant Stance bikes. These are truly capable mountain bikes, regardless of ability. Having both front and rear suspension, the Stance offers the rider exceptional comfort, control and fun off road! The air-sprung suspension is designed to not “bob” as the cyclist pedals, making it very efficient, whilst absorbing the bumps ensuring maximum grip and a smooth ride, even over very rough ground.

The bikes also come with a quality Shimano gear system and hydraulic disc brakes, enabling you to get up the hills and stop confidently on the way back down!

The Giant DIRT-E+ 2 & DIRT-E+ 1

 The Club has 2 all-new Dirt-E+ 2 and 2 all-new Dirt-E+1 bikes. Their stable, XC-oriented frames and integrated EnergyPak batteries provide the ultimate power to take on the toughest hilltops of North Zakynthos. The Dirt-E+ bikes also have a compact SyncDrive motor that unleashes a smooth and swift power to support your pedalling, giving you more strength and durability during your ride.

The Location

For those looking for a rustic cycling holiday in Greece, North Zakynthos offers plenty of charming roads for exploration. The hardcore cyclist will relish the multitude of uphill climbs and those new to the sport will enjoy a host of less hilly routes for easy riding.

A popular trip for Peligoni guests is through the Port of Agios Nikolaos, up to the hills through the village of Volimes. Here lies an enchanting landscape filled with pine forests, olive groves, local farms and vineyards. You’ll head down to the shipwreck lookout and back up and down the hills back to The Club.

For those not so hot on hills, our guide will take you along the coast or smaller hills and beautiful views of the ocean.Whether you hire a bike for a week or take a guided ride one morning, our on-site bike guide will happily tailor a route to your specifications.
