Bicycles…

Bicycles are a major form of transportation for many Europeans. When visiting most larger European cities, you will find ample and easy to use bike rental services. Cities have many bike paths and sidewalks are constructed to a accommodate both riders and wakers with separate designated lanes. Be careful that you do not walk in marked bike lanes as a rider will ring their handle bar bell at you to move over.

Major cities all have rental bike rack stations position throughout the city. Rent a bike using your credit card and grab a bike out of the rack. Ride all over to your hearts content and return the bike to any other of the many bike station racks in the city.

Riding a bike allows you to cover a lot of space and go where cars, buses and public transit can not. See more in less time and get some good exercise.
