Roula was started, like many businesses today, with a frustration followed by a simple question: why isn’t it easier to find and rent a premium quality road bike wherever you travel?
As a result, Roula was created to fulfill our mission to provide ultimate efficiency for the traveling cyclist, plus serve an increasing corporate interest in the sport by creating bespoke team building and premium corporate events: click, rent, ride.
