Renting a bike in Switzerland or Germany
« on: 2016-01-25 19:45:19 »
My daughter will be in Basel Switzerland for the next two years. I am looking for some where to rent near Basel. Everything I find on line is Zurich or Munich. Will be in Basel for all of May 2016, I know it may be too early for the alps but would still like to ride through the county side.




Any information would be appreciated.

    Hi Bill,


    try this BMW dealer in Basel - there you can rent BMW bikes: http://www.toeffcenter.ch/bmw/de/vermietung.html


    It's a rather small shop, but they have good staff. They sell new and used bikes, and they rent BMWs (F and R type. Not the K though).


    Töff Center Basel AG
    Reinacherstrasse 204
    4053 Basel
    Phone. 061/ 333 88 88


    Hope this helps

    It doesn't have to make sense. It's ok if it's just fun :-)

      Regarding the Alps in May: not all passes will be open, but there are some great mountain roads that you can ride in May, not too far from Basel. Nearby is also the black forest (Germany),Grand Ballon (Alsace, France),or some of the best roads in Switzerland. If you need more info, let me know.

      HDBeemer thank you for the information. I have sent  a message to the dealer in Basel. This may work out much better than traveling to find a bike. Information on where to ride would be welcome. Where in CH are you located?
