Each bike comes with a helmet, spare inner tube and tools for repairing a flat. Although not brand new, our bicycles are in excellent shape and 21 gears. When you come to Bhaktapur just go to the main entrance and tell one of the trekking guides to help you rent some bikes. If you need a guide there are several who love doing bike tours.
How much will they cost? 1,000 NRs. per day (or any part of a day), plus 1,000 NRs. for your guide's bike if you would like to hire a guide. A guide will help you to see the more interesting things along the way and keep you safe. They will generally need at least 1,000 NRs. plus expenses per day.
One of the advantages of doing a bike ride with a local guide is that he will have excellent stamina in case you are planning a trek outside the Kathmandu Valley. If you find him helpful and enjoy his company you will be able to get a good price for a guide for a trek.
There are many excellent biking trails in and around Bhaktapur. With a couple of mobile apps you will have many options for destinations. I recently read a blog post that made several suggestions for moblile apps for bikers.
What is your money for the bike rental going to be used for? All our profit from this project will be to help the local farmers to transition to organic farming. If you plan to come to Nepal and would like to work in organic farming we can place you with a local family or host you at Star View Guest House.
