Did you know that many Rad locations across Europe have fleets of our ebikes available to rent? So whether you’re going on holiday without your bike, or you’d just like to try before you buy, renting a Rad ebike is a great way to level up your time away from home.
With the summer holidays already upon us, we’ve pulled together our top 5 locations where you can ride Rad, thanks to our rental fleet locations, along with some of the best things you can do on your bike in destination spots.
1. La Londe-les-Maures, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, Southern France
Discover the most beautiful beaches on the Varoise coast – via ebike! Home to our #1 Rad Rental spot, the four beaches of La Londe-les-Maures’ cover more than 3km of the Mediterranean coast: Miramar, Tamaris, Pellegrin and the Argentière. The beachside town sits at the edge of Maures Mountains and looks out to the Golden Islands of Hyeres. The area boasts dozens of cycling routes to choose from, so whether you’re looking for an easy ride or expert-level, there’s something for everyone here.
2. The Algarve, Portugal
Along the beautiful southern coastline of Portugal is the Algarve, an area known for its sandy beaches and picturesque towns. While there are a number of bike routes you can take in this region, we recommend the 35km route from Praia Grande to Falésia beach in Albufeira. This former fishing village has beautiful beaches and a marina where you can take boat trips to go diving or dolphin watching. In addition to water activities, you can walk through the cobbled streets of Old Town to see local landmarks or even visit Albufeira’s Archaeological Museum with artifacts dating back to the Stone Age! Just don’t forget to charge your battery before you return!
3. Athens, Greece
There is so much to do in Greece’s capital city, from cutting-edge galleries to incredible architecture and enough cafes to keep your thirst quenched. Why not see it all from an ebike? Having an electric bike will make it easier to ride up the hills of Muses to catch amazing views of the city. Check out one of the most impressive streets in Athens, Dionyssiou Aeropagitou Street, where you can see amazing views of the Acropolis. You can even take guided or self-guided tours of the city!
4. Cornwall, United Kingdom
If you love biking, Rad’s ebike rental fleet will make it much easier for you to explore Cornwall’s nearly 650km of coastline! Rad’s unique all-terrain ebike options will allow you to take routes that no other bikes can, whether you choose to cruise along the grassy trails above Gwithian’s famous “3 Mile Beach” or the 16km coastal ride from Marazion to Mousehole. With Rad, you can discover Cornwall’s beautiful beaches and landscape without dealing with traffic and rental cars.
5. Sintra, Portugal
Last but certainly not least, use a Rad ebike to explore the charming Portuguese town of Sintra with its beautiful mountainside palaces, parks, country estates, and even a medieval castle! Whether you ride to the coast for seaside views and wineries, or stay in town to view breathtaking gardens and romantic era architecture, you won’t regret having an ebike to get you there without the sweat or hassle of other forms of transportation.
6. United States
If you’re venturing a bit further from home this summer for a trip across the pond, go for a test ride at one of our locations in some amazing cities in the U.S. Heading to California? Do some California dreaming on a test ride in Berkeley, Huntington Beach or San Diego. Ride a mile high in Denver, Colorado (literally, the city is 5,280 feet above sea level!) or cruise with some amazing mountain views in Salt Lake City, Utah. If you’re headed to Seattle, Washington, you can pedal by the original Starbucks location or stop off at the famous Pike Place Market.
