The Wheel ThingPic

Europe is bicycle friendly. There's even a museum in Oldenburg, deep in Germany's Lower Saxony region, devoted to bicycles.

Rental bikes are widely available; check with the local tourist information center. In some countries, including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland and Switzerland, bikes can be rented at major railway stations.

Bicycles can be carried on many trains- the charge is modest. Even on Le Shuttle, for example, it's just $24 .

Two thousand bicycles are available free for use in the center of Copenhagen. A deposit of about $3 is refunded when the bike is returned to any of 120 stands. A city bike patrol works to prevent theft and can be called on for on-the-spot repairs.

Biking is a way of life in Holland. A network of marked bicycle paths traverse the country.
