We've got the lowdown on the best places to grab your cycling gear.

Cycling days are exciting; there are new places to visit, wonders to be discovered and leg-pumping action to be had. So high-performance cycling gear is a must to stay comfortable in the saddle. Climbing hills and pedalling along rivers cyclists need riding gear that provides comfort, stretch and all-kinds-of-weather protection.

After discovering all of the best cycle routes in Croatia, we found the best stores to purchase top quality bikes and spare parts. We also tracked down outfitters who import the highest quality jerseys, lightweight jackets that shield against wind and chill as well as cycling shorts, tights and pants designed to reduce drag and aid aerodynamics.

For Mountain bikers, we know where to get the most relaxed-fitting clothes built for endurance and abrasion resistance as well as places who can assist you in finding the best fitting gloves, shoes and have loads of bike accessories.

Don't want to buy gear, no problem we know just where to rent a bike in Croatia. Explore cities like Zadar, Split and Pula on a borrowed bike for the day, week or month. Renting a bike around town is not only simple you are also helping to reduce CO2 emissions. Several cities across Croatia even offer guided tours on bikes. Neat huh!

Compact electric bikes make cruising through old Roman towns fun - imagine what the Romans would think now. Let the e-bike do all of the work making the way up steep climbs to not-to-be -missed vantage points, no need to break a sweat.  With so many key sights to enjoy you can be cruising along with the wind in your hair - then just take the bike back. Easy. E-bikes are new to Croatia, but we'll be sure to keep up to date when new locations spring up.

All of the local shops we recommend are experienced, knowledgeable and are excellent places to get the lowdown on secret out of the way routes.
