Hi Sonja,

There are many bike rentals in Lyon, but I am afraid I can't recommend any of them as we have our own bikes and use the Velov' system for short rides. The only one I know is specialized in electric bikes, that might interest you; The shop is located in Saint Georges neighborhood, they have a gret team and well maintained bikes:

Hello and thanks for your reply to my post!

I was wondering if you could give me any tips on how to search for a bike rental in Lyon on the internet? (My french is more than just a bit rusty...)

I always seem to end up only finding the inner-city-free-bike system...

And my trip is getting closer :)

Thanks!

You might use Google translator : rental = location/ rent = louer, bike = vélo.

So jif you just google "louer vélo Lyon", you will get several links, for example :
