I'm a first-timer for the Le Mans 24H; I'll be arriving in Le Mans on Friday the 7th, and I'm thinking about renting a bike to take a tour of the circuit. I tried to contact Velo-Setram to see how they felt about renting bikes to foreigners (their website only mentioned prices for people from within the Le Mans metropole, which I definitely am not), but never got a reply. Has anybody had any experience with doing this? Velo-Setram is also closed on Sunday, which seems odd since that would seem like the most popular day for bike rentals. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I have not seen any bike rentals near the track, not sure if any in the city.
You could always do what I did last year.....
Brought a folding bike from Argos, used it for the week and then returned it as it was crap, got me about for the week though! wink

I just buy folding bikes on ebay, they're brilliant. 20" wheels are the most common and best all round, but if you're short on car space get a 16" wheel folding bike

Cheapest bike you can get on ebay and bring it with you if you can, probably get stolen anyway

A mate put a post up on a local area FB group in the UK and got a free MTB.
It was ideal for a run to the bakery or the stters on Bleu Nord!
