So it looks like work will be taking me to Vevey for a couple of days next week and it would be rude not to try and squeeze in a quick ride whilst out there.

Can anyone recommend a decent road bike hire place in or as close as possible to Vevey?

Thanks

  • I'm just back from that area and used this company, based in Saillon which is about 25 minutes from Vevey.

    Contact Dominik on the e-mail given on the website and he will look after you. I hired a top spec Kuota KOM bike for four days for CH180 (£126). This is much cheaper than having the bike delivered for you by train. Price is strictly CH60 a day, but I stretched it to four days by haggling a little.

    You'll need to leave a piece of ID as a deposit. They speak no English, but I got by in basic French. Ask to louer un velo re route, haut de gamme.

    I tried a few routes in the area. From Saillon, you are close to Riddes - La Tsoumaz which is a testing 13.5k climb at 9.3% average.
  • Velo DE route, tsk tsk
