Avalon’s New Cycle Fleet Unlocks More of Europe’s Riverside Scenery

May 11, 2016 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

53b8a735-52fe-4c26-af88-08681b1b5f7dAvalon Waterways has introduced a new fleet of bicycles, each as modern and innovative as its successful Suite Ships on the rivers of Europe.

Now available on board all Avalon European ships, the cycles give guests the option to explore more of the local villages and riverside scenery under their own steam.

Manufactured by Tern, the bikes are a light-weight foldable design that can be quickly deployed and easily stored.  They represent the latest in portable cycle design and incorporate recycled aluminium and environmentally friendly materials in line with Tern’s eco-friendly philosophy.

Six bikes are carried on each of Avalon’s 135m ships and five on its 110m ships, and are provided on a complimentary basis along with maps, directions, helmets and drinking water. Guests simply put their name down to reserve a cycle and explore on a self-guided basis while the ships are docked.

The onboard bikes are offered in addition to the regular guided cycling excursions already available on many of Avalon’s European river cruises.

Avalon Waterways operates among the most modern ships on the rivers of Europe, with an average age of just over three years.  Each of Avalon’s revolutionary Suite Ships has been cleverly designed with 30 per cent more cabin space than the industry average and wall-to-wall panoramic windows that slide back to turn the entire cabin into an open-air balcony.
