There are so many better way to explore a city than hopping on and off a tour bus! Why not try the bike for a change? The best thing about discovering a city by bike is the flexibility a bike offers. Visitors can actually chart their own routes and experience neighbourhoods and the city lifestyle like a local. The government sponsored bike schemes are available for locals as well as visitors. It’s amazing how easy they are actually to use and so much cheaper than the sightseeing bus.

All information, from how to register to rates as well as recommended routes can be found on Momondo’s handy guide to public bike schemes in Europe.
