Great stay here for 2 weeks. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. Blancabikes looked after me and very well and took care of all my needs. This is a brilliant place to come to for training, and only being a 5 minute ride from the coast, you have all the cafes and restaurants you could ask for. I would seriously recommend to anyone looking a cycling getaway.

What a great place to rent a bicycle at Blanca Bikes to explore the area around Xabia (Javéa)! Perfect bikes of very high quality (I rented the Cervélo Solist Rival). And I very much liked the professionalism and kindness of Nigel who helped me getting this unforgettable experience!

We used Bianca bikes for a transfer from Alicante to Calpe, 4 people with 4 bike boxes. Super slick, the driver was waiting for us in arrivals at the airport and we were straight into the private bus parked outside. They even helped us with a mechanical in Parcent on our last day free of charge. Thank you.

This was my first experience on a bike camp and I would recommend Blanca Bikes for anyone interested in a great cycling adventure. The staff was great, breakfast every morning was world class, and the cycling in the Xabia area is world class.
Unreal 3 days riding with Blanca! A very friendly and relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, something for everyone. We were a group of 4 medium / keen cyclists and couldn’t have been better - some stupidly nice routes around the area, the bikes we were given the best bikes we’ve ever ridden and the breakfast in the morning sorted us right out. Couldn’t recommend this enough! Cheers to Nigel Peter and the rest of the team for sorting us out

Blanca Bikes were awesome at providing supported rides with postcard views on fantastic bikes, located centrally in excellent accommodation with the best breakfast to start the day. Will recommend Blanca Bikes to all my cycling mates!

First impressions: Clearly the team Blanca Bikes’ mission is to create the perfect cycling vibe - friendly, bustling and full of enthusiasm. Or perhaps it’s simply in their collective DNA. Either way, as soon as I crossed the threshold of Blanca Bikes Hostal, it felt like my spiritual cycling home - I had arrived! My all carbon bike was ready, prepped and patiently awaiting the addition of SPD pedals and my Garmin Edge slotting reassuringly into the pre-installed seat. Plug & play - attention to detail & life made easy! Stage (guided ride) 2 and we’ve got our champion rider in the breakaway; one final ‘sticky bottle’ feed from the service vehicle and we press on for success. The Director Sportive isn’t taking anything for granted, barking orders and encouragement into the team radio - crossing the finish line, arms now held aloft following the expressed recognition towards the BB Logo!! Everyone is utterly charmed and the Blanca Bikes palmerés records yet another deserved achievement - more delighted customers ready to sing the praises on a thoroughly positive and enjoyable cycling experience. On the podium for the GC this year, for sure - a Costs Blanca ‘Grand’ Tour, in every sense of the word! Chapeau!!

Awesome service. Cant rate Blanca Bikes high enough. Peter sorted me with a ride with very little notice, super flexible in my requests, and gave some excellent suggested route. I'd really recommend.
