For guests of Hotel Montreux, bike renting is available completely free of charge. All you have to do is contact the hotel reception in good time and reserve the bikes you need. We have a very good reason for encouraging you to get around on two wheels while you are staying in Montreux. Quite simply, we believe that it is by far the best way to appreciate our town and region.
Read on to find out more about our commitment to free bike renting.
Bike renting is fun
Imagine the fresh mountain air filling your lungs as you ride along the lake shore. Feel the wind blowing through your hair and marvel at the splendour of the Alps. How good does that feel? It’s the same excitement that you felt as a child while racing around on your first bike. Let yourself experience that again.
Bike renting is healthy
Cycling doesn’t have to be strenuous, but it’s always beneficial to push yourself a little. Exercise is one of the best ways of promoting wellbeing and relaxation that we know of. Wellbeing and relaxation is what we are all about at Hotel Montreux.
Bike renting is convenient
If you are exploring the narrow streets of Montreux or Vevey old towns, by far the best way to travel is by bike. You can get from place to place quickly and easily, without parking problems. Even the sound of your bicycle bell will make people smile, and you willsmell the fresh bread from the bakeries as you ride by.
If you want to travel further afield, a cycling gives you many more options than walking. A bike renting service will provide you with a decent set of wheels, so you should easily be able to reach attractions such as Castle Chillon.
Bike renting is green
Montreux became a ‘City of Energy’ in 1999, committing itself to sustainable development. Cycling is a very important part of that. When you’re surrounded by mountains, and there’s a fresh breeze blowing off the lake, it just feels right to travel by bike rather than car. We know what a precious and fragile natural environment we have here, and we’d like you to help us protect it.
So, when you arrive, don’t forget to ask reception about free bike renting.
