Pedal Power

Slow sightseeing from a bike is just the perfect fusion of exercise, exploration, admiration for the slowly passing countryside and satisfaction for a job well done!  All these goals are now achievable if you hire a bike from Countrybike, a local company which enables you to hire a bike via a mobile app.

Bikes are located both at selected heritage sites or they can be delivered to a specific address if ordered in advance.  Feel inspired or challenged?  Go and get on a Countrybike and pedal away!
