My boyfriend and I cycle a fair amount in the states, and wanted to do a self guided bike trip in Provence. Matthieu was absolutely wonderful! He made planning from abroad a million times easier. He was very quick to respond to emails, kind, thoughtful, and detail oriented. The bikes we rented from him were awesome-we were a bit worried, since we are totally spoiled by the bikes we own, but his rental bikes were very nice and could totally handle the range of terrain we encountered. Not a single flat or fall! Matthieu is super nice and knows the area very, very well. He had great suggestions and routes. We would rent from him again in a heartbeat! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Matthieu took great care of us! We did the Ultimate 5 Day loop from Aivignon, to Gordes, Chateauneuf du Pape, Uzes, and Arles. The bikes were in amazing , very new, condition. 24 gears, which you will use! The GPS was a game changer, it really let you enjoy the views and enjoy the ride knowing you wouldn’t get lost. We had a wonderful time and I would recommend both the shop and the tour we chose.

We had the pleasure of stumbling upon Mathieu’s business during our short trip to Avignon. We took a day trip to Pont du Gard and also the cultural tour of Avignon. We cannot speak highly enough of the wonderful support and service Mathieu provided. The bikes were extremely well maintained and very comfortable. The trip notes/ map was clear and comprehensive. The highlight for us was the morning cultural tour. Mathieu is extremely knowledgeable about his home town and it’s fascinating history and was able to take us to very interesting spots in the city that we would not have otherwise gone to. He gave us this tour in the pouring rain and maintained good humour throughout. Despite ending up dripping wet we had a wonderful wonderful time and would highly recommend South Spirit!

We had a sunset bike tour with Mathieu this evening and we had an amazing time! There is truly no better way to see Avignon then with somebody as knowledgeable and friendly as he. I was apprehensive of the small amount of traffic we had to pass through but he was so mindful that I was secure and comfortable the entire time. He’s also a wealth of information about the history of this lovely town. He truly brought all the history to life....even including a yummy local treat to enjoy! We rode our E bikes through cobblestone streets, fruit orchards, along the river and through country meadows....breathtaking scenery!
We highly recommend!!

I rented an electric bike from South Spirit Bikes for a two week tour that finishing up last week. I can’t say enough about the fabulous responsiveness and customer support provided by Mathieu and Victor throughout. They were extremely flexible with my changing requirements and all my emails/phone calls were answered promptly and handled wonderfully. In short, they were awesome to work with and I would recommend them without hesitation!
