The cycling season has been officially opened and the weather predisposes us to take the bicycle and discover Plovdiv from a different angle. In one of our previous articles By bike in the city under the hills, we revealed how convenient this way of exploration and movement can be. You don’t have to consider traffic, you don’t have to wait at stops and track schedules, and it's faster than walking. Last but not least – it’s eco-friendly!
In recent years and after the building of the 60 km of bicycle paths, it is now possible to get to most places and neighborhoods with your bicycle alone. If you have one... But after our research, it turned out that this is not a problem at all. Although not many, in Plovdiv there are still a few options where you can rent a bike. One of the platforms even offers hiring a motorbike or a scooter. It all depends on what adventure you want to indulge in and where to go.
On the tour operator-controlled website, you can find a wide selection of a variety of vehicles to rent. The range of tourist services includes - motorcycles for rent, car rental, shuttle services, bicycle rental, scooter rental, etc. not only on the territory of Plovdiv and Bulgaria but also abroad. Directly on the site, you can make a reservation of the desired vehicle and take it from your chosen place - hotel, airport, exact address. Convenient service, especially when you will need it for a longer period of time and want to get to know the city or Bulgaria in this way.
Plovdiv Bike Rent
If you’ve already passed the picturesque creative district of Kapana, you couldn’t have missed the interesting advertisement for Plovdiv Bike Rent’s office. The pink bicycle will direct you with an exact address and phone to the office where you can rent the desired bike. Various models and even opportunities for cycling tours are available. It is both convenient if you are a tourist and would like to explore most of the city in a shorter time, not depending on urban transport, or a local who wants to spend a weekend or afternoon in a slightly different way.
Bike rental - Rowing Channel
Undoubtedly, one of the most comfortable places to practice cycling as a sport is the Rowing Channel. There is also a place to rent a bike and take a rush into a race with the wind by the water. Right behind the stands, you will find a variety of bikes and models. So there is no need to load the car and wonder where to put which bike so that the whole family joins the cycling tour.
Normally, to rent a bicycle you will have to pay a deposit and a rental fee, depending on the period you rent it. Unfortunately, there are still no stations where you can take a municipal bicycle and leave it at the next, convenient place. The ambitious project of the municipality is to introduce shared use, but so far we are still far from providing this service to the citizens and guests of the city.
