Bicycles and Equipment
Our bicycles are the most modern quality bikes of the brand KTM, which were specially designed for the requirements and the wishes of our guests. This resulted in easy-running, robust touring bikes with low comfort entry and puncture-proof tires. The elevated handlebars allow for comfortable and back-friendly riding. The bikes in our fleet are usually not older than 3 years. During the duration of the trip you are liable for damage, loss or theft. Bike insurance can be purchased on board.
The following bikes are available for rent:
- 24-Speed UNISEX* with comfort entry, hand brakes and freewheel
- E-Bikes (Pedelecs) UNISEX with freewheel and 28" tires in frame sizes 43 / 45 / 50 cm. max. permissible total weight 130kg
*Men’s frames are provided for men over 188 cm tall.
Our rental bikes are equipped with: Pannier, handlebar bag, air pump. Per cabin you will receive a service kit with tools and a bike lock. In the on-board store you will receive quality bicycle helmets as well as cycling clothing (e.g. jerseys, pants, sweaters, rain jackets, rain ponchos).
On request, 7-speed UNISEX* touring bikes with hand and coaster brakes can be provided, as well as child seats and child trailers.
Electric Bikes | E-Bikes | Pedelecs
We provide modern quality e-bikes (pedelecs) with 5/8-speed hub gears and low UNISEX comfort entry. The bikes have a powerful Bosch mid-motor and strong 500wh battery. IMPORTANT: please reserve ebikes early, as they are only available in very limited numbers.
Punctures can occur even with new wheels and the best maintenance. Fix punctures yourself, for major damage please contact our on-site staff. Please do not have any repairs done to the bikes without consulting the cruise director.
Bringing of own bikes
You are welcome to bring your own bike. Please bring spare tube and tool bag as well as a lock and check the bike for functionality before your departure. The bikes will be parked on the sun deck (not covered), unfortunately parking inside the ship is not possible for safety reasons.
Due to the very limited space available, the bicycles stand close to each other, when crossing bridges they must be laid flat. For organizational reasons, the bicycles (also customer’s own) are sometimes not brought on board overnight, but are locked at the pier in front of the ship. Your bike has to be brought ashore and back by our crew almost daily from the sun deck via a narrow staircase. We try to handle your bikes as gently as possible, but in rare cases small scratches or damages cannot be avoided.
IMPORTANT: Please be sure to remove any bike boxes/baskets permanently mounted on the luggage rack and any side mirrors attached to the handlebars. Our crew requires unobstructed access. Batteries must also be removed for loading and unloading. The weight of the e-bikes must not exceed 23kg without the battery.
For the transport of your daily luggage, we provide you free of charge with a waterproof Ortlieb pannier bag (20 l), which you can easily attach to your luggage rack.
