“Don’t let fear hold you back”
After working as a professional cyclist for four years, I decided to start something new and unknown. The idea was to start a bike rental business in Orihuela Costa and the Torrevieja area that fits into the cycling culture here in Spain.
I spend my last year as a professional in Spain taking advantage of the perfect climate in Torrevieja and Orihuela Costa.
With over 300 days of sunshine, there are few places in Europe that can match these great conditions. And the customers who rent a bike from us know this all too well.
Our core business revolves around bicycle rental for racing bicycles, electric bicycles and (e-)mountain bikes. We also sell high-end e-bikes from the Riese & Müller brand. People who choose to buy a bike here have nothing to worry about. Not only once the bike is bought, but also in the years that follow.
When I was a professional cyclist and also as an amateur cyclist, I already came to Torrevieja and Orihuela Costa to train. At Orihuela Costa, where Lammertink Bikes is located, there was no bike shop or bike rental nearby.
Although the initial intention was to only rent out bicycles, mainly due to Covid, we have decided to also offer bicycles for sale. Many people live or spend a lot of time here on the Costa Blanca every year and we wanted to be able to help those people optimally.
After selling a lot of e-bikes in early 2021, we decided to keep investing and growing the bike shop. Although we still feel the consequences of everything that has happened in the world, we want to continue in the same direction.
