FAQ

Should I reserve a bike?

It's always better to reserve a bike, to make sure that the Trekking Bikes, Mountain Bikes and Road Bikes are available. To make a reservation you can fill the reservation form, call us, send a mail, fill out our online form or simply visit our shop.

For a long-term reservation and for Trekking-, Mountain and Road bikes we ask you for a prepaid (20 Euro) per bank transfer or PayPal. In case of non-appearance the payment in advance won't be paid back, because we're not able to accept any other reservations for your reserved bike.

Our City Bikes are suitable for women as well as men. They have a classic form with a low double bar. Our Folding Bikes can be used by everyone as well.

Do you also rent Mountain Bikes and Racing Bikes?

Yes, we own a sufficient bike pool with Mountain Bikes as well as Road Bikes in different sizes. The needed tools for longer bike trips can be rented at our shop too. In addition we also offer Trekking Bikes (or Hybrid Bikes), which are a combination of Mountain- and Road Bike. For more information about these models check this link.

We return the money or the document after you returned the bike.

Do I need to leave a deposit for each bike I rent?

If you want to rent more than one bike – for example with your family or friends – one document as a deposit is enough. The owner of the document will also be the signer of the contract and is responsible for the rented bike and tools.
