The staff was friendly and very helpful in providing instructions on the use of electric bicycles. The quality of the bikes was top notch. Be prepared to pay the deposit in cash and provide your passport. Reservations are highly recommended, especially for the electric bikes. There are also a number of standard bicycles they offer free of charge. Bicycling through... More

You can rent a sturdy bicycle and ride for four hours at no charge. (You pay a deposit and get the money back when you return the bicycle.) I road along the north side of Lake Geneva, which didn't provide much view of the lake. After about an hour, the bike path finally veered away from the highway and I... More

What a fantastic way to get around Geneva. I had a sore ankle so couldn't walk very far and I was thrilled to bits to be able to hire bikes and for free. You just need to leave a deposit of 20 swiss francs and can return the bikes to any one of their 7 locations.

Hire a bike in Geneva, and you only pay a deposit to use it. The first 4 hours are for free and only 2 euro for each hour thereafter. You can see quite a lot in four hours and you do not have to five the bike back at the place you have hired it from. As there are 4... More

I'm so glad I discovered this via TripAdvisor. Free bike rental for 4 hours, thereafter CHF2 per hour - considering how expensive Geneva is this was a very welcome relief. The bikes were of suitable quality for cruising around the lake or city. Cannot recommend this enough!

I was going to be in Geneva for only one day and needed a same day bike rental. Since I was staying by the train station I needed it to be close to the train station. And I found it in Geneva Roule. They are located just across the street from the train station at Montbrillant. Renting was easy. The... More

A well established system, working almost to the perfection, like a swiss watch. Free for 2 hours, simple. No problems at all.

I rented (borrowed) a city bike from a Roule station on Lake Geneva. I rode 15 km up the north side of the lake. It was scenic and great villages along the way. Bring 20 CHF deposit and your passport to rent a bike. If you are under 4 hours you get the 20 back - more is 2 CHF... More

We had a couple of friends visit from out of town, and we wanted to show them around Geneva. It was so nice to be able to rent bikes for free at Geneve Roule. You can take bikes out for 4 hours for free - plenty of time to cruise along the lake and then to ride around the old... More
