I am going for a 4 day trip in Zürich and I would like to bike quite a lot. Though biking is quite advertised, I failed to find a decent bike rental shop in the city. Would highly appreciate some tips!

  • Not sure what is your standard of decent and where you will be biking, and maybe you've already considered the site, but rentabike.ch generally has bikes in good conditions for rental.

  • @zhantongz I've checked that one, but for Zurich they only provide a very basic mountain bike (not all models listed under "bicycles").

    rental shops in a city will rent bikes suitable for city use. If you want real "mountain" bikes you should look at rental shops in mountain resorts. Commented Aug 3, 2020 at 11:38

    I'd guess the answer is nowhere. Haven't seen any bike shops rent pro bikes anywhere.

    You could see if any local bike stores offer demo bikes. Strictly speaking you are supposed to be considering buying, but its often not hard to fake sufficient interest.

Not sure what your requirements are (and as others already mentioned the "better" models are probably mainly available in mountain resorts), but there are at least some shops in Zurich where you can rent mountain bikes (sites in German only)


It looks like Spinlister has a few listings, though I'm not sure if any are exactly what you're looking for or how far out of town you'd be willing to travel to do the pickup.
