Seven days a week, those places cover downtown Geneva, Carouge, Meyrin and Versoix. Over 35'000 free lending are made every season from the end of April to the end of October for the greatest satisfaction of the tourists and residents. Numerous different kinds of bikes are available for rental : tandem, cargo-bikes, mountain bikes, racing bikes and children bikes. Over 15‘000 rental days are made every year.

Our repair service of „flying mechanics“ will come anywhere in the canton of Geneva to rescue the cyclist whose bike has broken down and repair it from Monday to Saturday. With their cargo-bikes, the mechanics can tow the broken bike to a repair shop. There are over 200 interventions each year. More information
