Default Second Hand Bike

Hi All,

We will be living in Denia for 6 months and wanted to know where we could buy 2 second hand bikes. if anyone could point us in the right direction. We are happy to travel to Alicante or Valencia to pick them up as we will have a car.

Thanks.
Luna.

What are you going to do with the bikes when you leave? A local bike rental shop might offer you a good price on a long term rental.

As you're only coming for six months, one option you could consider are these electric hire bikes that are to be found parked on the street all over the larger population centres in Spain these days.

You simply have an app to enable you to take them for as long as you like and then park them up when you are done.

It would enable you to get straight into cycling when you get here while you hunt around for a solution for the six months.

You won't find those in Denia. You won't find them in Valencia either as we are the city of running and fitness. You can use Valenbici which are the same as the Boris bikes of London but you can't take them out of the city, certainly not to Denia.

When buying second hand, please be careful who you buy from. If it smells stolen, it most likely is. Please don't feed the machine. How do you do that? Buy from a private individual who isn't selling bikes on a regular basis or go to a reputable shop who can tell you where they bought it. Once you've gotten past that part you need good locks or it will end up back on Wallapop, possibly in the city it was originally stolen from. Locks being plural if you have quick release wheels or seats.

Check out the local bike hire shops. They often have older bikes for sale- I picked up mine very cheap, they serviced it and gave me a three-month guarantee.
