Very fortunate that the weather was brilliant when I booked this in advance of my trip. There was no real need to book in advance because there are hundreds of bikes, but it was only May, so the Summer could be different. Anyway, this was my first time on a bike in years, no helmet, but the system was fantastic with the cyclelines, go in same direction as traffic and you can't go wrong. Munich is so flat, hardly had to change a gear and it was the best way to see heaps of the city that was too spread out.
I was little worried about leaving bike chained up as they do take a credit card number incase of damage or lose, but it would appear that less stuff is stolen in Munich, though they supply a bike lock. Kept it for the full 24 hours as my apartment had a place to secure it. Munich is the city to cycle round, have fun.
Renting bikes for two days was the best way to get around the city. We opted to try it on our own, and not sign up for the tour. We couldnt have been more happy to have done so. We got to explore Munich in a way the locals do. We were all over the city, from the Englischer Garten, to Schwabing, Isator, Marienplatz, and all the way down the River Isar. With just a map and our sense of adventure we rode around Munich until our hearts were content. Viator couldnt have been more helpful, providing a map and answering any questions. I will definitely be using them again! Thank you so much!

Munich is a great city to ride in. We were given a map and shown various routes to hit our target destinations. Lots, and I mean lots, of bike trails around town.
the staff was very helpful to allow me to try the bike first before I went for my actual ride. a good way to see Munich on your own since the city has bike paths.
