From high-quality bikes to those with a vintage charm, from rentals at the heart of the city to those conveniently located by the beach, I’ve got something for everyone!
So stick around, because this is more than just a list of bike rentals—it’s your golden ticket to the most unforgettable, two-wheeled Valencia adventure you could possibly imagine. Let’s ride!
Best bike rentals in Valencia
Valencia is an incredibly bike-friendly city. It has plenty of bike lanes and it’s very flat, meaning that biking around the city is easily one of the best ways to see the sights without taking the time to walk everywhere.
You can choose to stick to the city center if you want, although there are also bike lanes all the way out to the nearby beaches. Another option is to take your bikes out to Albufera, the natural lagoon area near Valencia which is the home of paella!
However you wish to spend your time in Valencia, these bike rental options are great value, well-located and have everything you need to get you whizzing around the city in no time at all.
That said, if you like the idea of biking but aren’t sure where to go, why not check out these bike tours of Valencia? They’re an excellent way for you to see all those things you shouldn’t miss, while getting the best information on just what you’re seeing as you go!
If you’re here for a few days, you may not need a tour as you can go at a more leisurely pace. But for anyone short on time, I’d really recommend you think about taking a bike tour to maximize the time you have available.
1. Top Pick for Visitors: TourPoint Valencia
Now, if it’s your first time visiting Valencia or if you’re just here for a short trip, let me introduce you to my top pick: TourPoint Valencia. Centrally located with several pick-up points (I mean, how handy is that?), these guys offer you the flexibility to rent for one day, two days, or more.
Quality? Top notch! They cater to every kind of cyclist, be it a city wanderer, BMX bandit or a tandem enthusiast.
What’s more, they throw in some extra goodies for free! Need a phone holder? Check. Locks, baskets, helmets? Check, check, check.
Their fantastic service has earned them rave reviews, so you can cycle away with complete peace of mind.
2. Best for Tour + Self-Rental Combination: MO’bike
For those seeking an intimate guided tour and some solo cycling time, let me steer you towards MO’bike Bike Rental. This homegrown outfit knows Valencia like the back of their hand and genuinely believes in the power of the humble bicycle as the best way to explore the city.
And honestly, who am I to argue? Valencia’s flat terrain, extensive bike lanes, and glorious weather make it a cyclist’s paradise.
Their pick-up point is conveniently located just behind the Central Market. And they offer a variety of bikes to cater to your unique pedalling preferences – from city bikes and MTBs to tandems and electrics.
They even have bikes for the kiddos and baby seats for the tiny tots. A lock, helmet, and map are all included in the rental.
And did I mention they run one of the best bike tours in Valencia? The Valencia City MO’Bike Tour is a 5-star rated experience that will take you on a truly memorable spin around the city.
3. Better for Long-Term Use: Valenbisi
If you’re here for the long haul, or if you’re a local like me, then I’d point you towards Valenbisi.
This is more than just a bike rental – it’s a whole bike sharing system! With around 300 stations scattered across the city, you’re never too far from your next ride.
The cost is a steal if you plan on using the bike regularly. Just €13.30 gets you 7 days of service, with the first 30 minutes of each ride totally free. If you exceed that, you’ll pay a small extra fee.
And for the die-hard cyclists among you, there’s an annual option for €29.21. It works much like the weekly service, only it’s even cheaper if you exceed the first 30 minutes. I use Valenbisi all the time for zipping from point A to B, and it’s perfect.
Just keep in mind that this system is better suited for shorter, point-to-point journeys rather than long bike rides. If you plan on spending the day pedaling around or want the flexibility to stop and start as you please, the first two options above might be a better fit.
4. Doyoubike Rental
When it comes to flexibility, Doyoubike Rental is your friend! With not one, not two, but three possible pick-up points, they’ve got you covered whether you’re starting your day near Plaza de la Reina, Plaza del Ayuntamiento (that’s City Hall Square for those who didn’t ace Spanish in high school), or even in Camins Al Grau (on your way to the beach).
These guys don’t skimp on extras – baby seats, helmets, repair kits, and more are all on offer. And guess what? You get a free lock, basket, and lights with every rental. Oh, and did I mention their in-store personal assistance?
They’re ready and waiting to fill you in on everything you need to know about Valencia. Find out Doyoubike Rental’s availability here.
I also recommend their Discover Valencia Bike Tour. It’s a steal for a three-hour, cycle-powered exploration of the city’s finest sights. And with a solid 4.5-star rating over 90 reviews, it’s clear I’m not the only fan!
5. Happy Tourist Center
Want to feel like a local and a tourist at the same time? Then let Happy Tourist Center lead the way. They offer a straightforward 24-hour bike rental that includes a helmet, a city map, and the luxury of luggage deposit.

6. Bike Diamond
Nothing says ‘freedom’ like exploring a city at your own pace. And that’s exactly what you get with Bike Diamond. Based just behind the Torres de Serranos, they offer a comfortable biking experience that lets you navigate the flat cityscape of Valencia with ease.
Pedal your way through the historic center, swing by the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences, and if you’re feeling the call of the sea, head to the port and the beach for some salty air.
Pick up your ride at their store in the city center from 10:00 a.m., and then pedal to your heart’s content until 8:00 p.m.
7. Segway Trip Valencia (but yes, they have bikes too!)
Don’t let the name fool you. Segway Trip Valencia may be all about those futuristic two-wheelers, but they also offer traditional bicycle rentals for those of us who prefer to keep things a bit more grounded.
Get ready to cycle through Valencia’s charming neighborhoods and historic center at your own pace. And with a pick-up point right next to the Torres de Serranos, the whole city is your oyster (or should I say, your paella?)
This is all about value for your money. So, whether you choose to Segway or cycle, an adventure awaits in the heart of Valencia!
8. Rent Bike Virgen
Feeling a bit more Dutch than Spanish? Rent Bike Virgen offers an impressive selection of Dutch bikes, alongside e-bikes with an amazing 90 km battery life, tandems, kids’ bikes, baby seats, and even trolleys for children.
Oh, and for the modern voyagers, they also have e-scooters with a sturdy 65 km battery life.
Located in the historic heart of Valencia, you can find them at three different stores: one near Plaza de la Virgen (hence the name!), another close to the Central Market, and their latest addition just a short stroll away from the Torres de Serranos.
