Sara emailed from the States to ask about bike hire near Saint-Pierre-Bois for the Alsace wine route. Here's what we came up with.

Hi Lyn,

I would like to take the day to bike the wine trail when visiting our homeland in Alsace.

We are staying at Saint-Pierre-Bois. Do you know a bike rental that is close to where we are staying?

Thanks for any travel assistance you can share,

Hi Sara,

Thanks for your email. I do need to get more bike hire outlets for Alsace on my site (it's a big job for one person!)

Vélocation was recommended to me for my bike delivery page – they are well-established and deliver throughout Alsace.

The Sélestat tourst office has electric bike for hire – they are part of the MoVelo Alsace programme. actually has bikes for hire. They are on the Route des Vins d'Alsace at 10 boulevard du Général Leclerc (phone +33 (0)3 88 58 87 20, email or see the website. They should be able to advise where to hire reguar bikes locally as well.

We'll Bike in Rothau has bike hire but only mountain bikes. The tourist board website lists the Intersport store at Villé as having bike hire, so they would be worth a phone call as well.

For more general info on cycling in Alsace (including links to maps and local information), see our cycling in Alsace article.

I hope that helps – I'd would love to hear how you get on.
