Renting a bike in Zurich?

Hi everyone, I found out about one company in Zurich which enables people to rent a bike, but their "season" is only from May until October.
Anyone knows if there are any other possibilities for renting a bike for free?
Thanks for informations
Cheers!

Instead of asking this thread to be deleted, why don't you post here what company you found and what are their services, so that the information becomes searchable?

It's called "Zürich on Wheels" and they have 2 all-year stations.

One is next to Swiss National Museum and is opened every day from 8 a.m. - 9.30 p.m. The other station is in southern part at the Sihlpost. Same schedule.

You just need to leave a deposit and you get it back when you return the car.

p.s. I thought the admins will delete my post because of the "advertising".

Anyhow, I hope I helped with these informations

Re: Renting a bike in Zurich?

Sorry to bump an old post, but didn't think this warranted a new thread.

I'm looking to rent a road bike for about 8 days in July to pick up/drop off in Zurich as I need to fly back to UK from Zurich the same day I drop it off. Doesn't need to be top of the range, but doing probably about 70km a day or so. I've seen this and other posts (i.e. [Zurich] renting a road bike?).

While I'll check out the recommendations I've seen, wondering if anyone has an up-to-date recommendation of something suitable (preferably, as difficult as it is in Zurich(!), not too expensive!).

Thanks

Re: Renting a bike in Zurich?

Hi Scot,

Have you seen this yet?

The train station offers bike rentals (and combines it with train tickets)

http://www.sbb.ch/en/station-service...elo0.html#velo

You can reserve here.

I've never tried it out myself but did investigate once when friends were visiting.

Also, there's a free option but you won't be able to rent the same bike over several days I think:

I hope it helps!

Re: Renting a bike in Zurich?

Hi there,

Did you know that from May to September 2015, you can drop off your car keys and try an electric bike for free? Combined with Mobility Carsharing when desired. It's in the whole of CH, also in Zürich, Dietikon, Duebendorf, Küsnacht, Stafa...

To find a participating e-bike shop: bike4car.ch

And if the experience is positive, why not drop the car altogether?
Cheers,

Joe
