Bike hire and service

Hire and return anywhere

A special service is waiting for you: Cycling the R3 Gailtal Valley Cycle Track or the R3b Gitschtal Valley Cycle Track, and then taking the train / bus back just as you like. But what about the hire bike? No problem! You can return the hire bike at the next best hire station and don’t have to worry about the bike transport. Regardless of the location where you hired the bike originally! The new cooperation between Europe’s largest bike service provider - “PAPIN Sport“– and the local tourist organisations, regional bike hire stations and public transport operators makes it possible.
