The success of your cycling holiday is closely related to the quality of your bike. On your cycling holiday you are likely to pedal several hundred kilometres. That's why we attach great value to our fleet of rental bikes, which constitutes some 1000 bicycles. We can provide practically everyone's dream bike! Do you prefer a classic model with 7 speeds and back-pedal brakes or would you prefer to go for an e-bike? The bikes shown here are all available on Radweg-Reisen tours that are appropriately marked.
And we haven't forgotten our younger guests: children's bikes and youth bikes are available in all sizes. The smaller bikes are very popular as these agile frames make for great cycling fun! Our bikes all conform with the highway code and are all checked and inspected for their road safety.For the youngest travellers, in addition to child trailers and child seats we also have a very special item in our programme. Have you heard about the new WeeHoos? The 2-7 year olds love them so much they often don't want to get off!
By the way: at the end of your cycling holiday you can simply leave your rental bike at the hotel. We automatically take care of picking it up. This makes your return journey to the start of your tour a relaxed and easy-going affair.

We do everything we can to make sure you don't have any breakdowns on your tour. Our mechanics check each individual rental bike before its next tour. You roll along on Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires. These tires are anti-puncture tires and are resistant even to things like drawing puns. The result is impressive: Our guests cycle annually over 1 million kilometres. And they have only a small number of punctured tires.
Rental bikes from our cooperation partners
The red speedsters are available on all Radweg-Reisen tours that are marked as such. The way the bikes are equipped differs depending on the travel operator. Each region has its own requirements for bikes and riders. The rental bikes provided by our local cooperation partners can therefore vary in terms of individual components and colours. But you can be sure that we attach great importance to the quality of the bikes that are offered when selecting from the offered tours. Thanks to our experience we know what is important.
Out and about on your own bikes
Are you and your bike inseparable? You cycle a lot of miles in your everyday life on the bike? Then we can understand that you won't want to do without it on your cycling holiday. And you won't have to! Please bear in mind, however, that the return trip from a tour can be a bit complicated: you have to transfer your bikes and your luggage in and out of the train.
Note that with our rental bikes you can be sure of having a bike that has been selected and put together especially for long tours. If you've never done a longer cycle tour on your own bike then we recommend having your bike inspected in terms of functionality and road safety by a professional before you set off.
