Out and about with your bike

Whether you’re off for a bike ride or off to work, riding a bike is healthy, fun and totally on trend.

Apart from that, biking goes wonderfully well with travelling by bus and rail: bus and rail services are the perfect add-on to conserve your energy until you arrive at the start of your bike ride or for part of your journey to work. Travelling with your bike is easy on almost all rail routes and on many local bus and rail services. And the best thing about it is that the bike goes free of charge.

The bike goes too

As a rule, bicycles are carried free of charge on RMV services.

In the summer months, special trains with bicycle racks with a particularly large number of bicycle racks are operated on some routes, which are located in heavily frequented and attractive bicycle touring areas.

Our leisure buses - usually in the summer half-year - bring hikers and bikers to extremely beautiful regions very comfortably. After the tour, when your legs are tired and heavy, you can be transported back to the starting point.
