Bicycle Rental In Thessaloniki

Bicycle Rental In Thessaloniki

I will vacationing in and around Thessaloniki for six weeks this summer. I love cycling and would like to bring my bicycle from Canada, but the air lines want to charge me close to €200 to check it on the plane.

So I believe two possible options for me are to either rent or buy a used bicycle in Thessaloniki. If I buy a used bicycle I can always leave it for my one of my cousins to use when I leave.

I just have the following two questions:

1.) How much are the bicycle rental rates in Thessaloniki?

2.) Is it pretty easy to find a used bicycle in Thessaloniki?

It would also be great if someone can show me links to online classified ads for used bikes in Thessaloniki. The classifieds I found so far (mylist.gr and craigslist.gr) don't show many listings.

Thanks,

Hello Kalogeros!

It is easy to find bicycles here in Thessaloniki, there are 3-4 bicycle shops that i have seen that sell, or even rent new or used bicycles. Of course there are also big shops with sports equipment and you can also buy bicycle from there.

Well..a new bicycle would cost around 150-250 euros and a used one could cost half (maybe less than half). There is the possibility to rent one, but i don't know the prices for that.

I am not sure if they have any website, but of course you can come and go to the shops directly and negotiate about the price of a bicycle.

A well known shop quite near the center is the Red zeppelin: http://www.redzeppelin.gr/ but i was shocked to see there are used bicycles for 500 euros(or even more)..So,this may not be an option..Another reputable shop,quite further away is this: http://www.actionbikeclub.gr/indexeg.php
