RENTAL CYCLES

From our experiences, some of the best visits involved the use of rental bicycles. Make sure to check beforehand as to whether a town has such a service. A passport is necessary for identification, and advance booking may be required, but once saddled up, it’s difficult to imagine a better way to see a town than to leisurely bike around it. The recent proliferation of battery-powered bicycles has made such visits even easier, though be sure to check how quick the battery is going down (such bicycles have a display to show the remaining battery life) because riding a dead battery-powered bike is quite a heavy burden!
Rental cycles are often available directly from a town’s tourist information office, but it is unusual to be allowed to rent one overnight.
