Rent bikes

In Gronau you have the possibility to rent bikes for a trip or even a whole weekend.

E-Rollfiets/Tricycle rental

Cycling is a daily companion for many people, but it is also an experience of nature. Wheel bikes offer an excellent opportunity to make this experience possible for people with disabilities.

The DRK-Generationenbüro lends out an E-Rollfiets free of charge. The front part can be detached and so you can, for example, take a break in a cafe. Alternatively, a tricycle can be rented

The bikes can be collected from the Gronau bike station or delivered to your home by prior arrangement.

Hire a Fun2Go bike

Cycling is normal for many people without disabilities. Why not also for people with disabilities? The senior citizens’ council of the town of Gronau has responded positively to this question and purchased a “Fun2Go” bike, a therapeutic electric parallel tandem, with financial support from Sparkasse Westmünsterland and the Gronau Community Foundation.

This bike makes it possible for a passenger with a handicap not only to ride along, but also to actively participate – depending on the type of handicap.

Rent a LARA cargo bike

The LARA cargo bike is an offer of the city of Gronau and can be borrowed and tested free of charge through the company Zweirad Scheipers.

The cargo bike is a pedelec with continuously variable hub gears and four drive levels. In addition, the two-wheeler has a removable child seat and a removable hood. LARA is 260 cm long, 75 cm wide and has an empty weight of 60 kg.

Only the identity card is required for borrowing and a deposit of 50 euros is required. Furthermore, the borrowing person must be at least 18 years old.

Reservations or bookings are possible under: 02562 8146440.

The node system

The hub network, known from the Netherlands and Belgium, enables flexible route planning in the Münsterland region – even across state and district borders. The district of Borken is the first Münsterland district to open the node system, and Gronau also already has several nodes.

The popular themed routes such as the “100 Castles Route”, the “Hohe Mark Cycle Route” or the “Flamingo Route” as well as the routes of the “River Landscapes” are integrated into the network of junctions and additionally marked on the signposts by route pictograms.

The G-Mobile

The practical alternative to buses and cabs: the G-Mobil. The G-Mobil stops at over 130 stations throughout the city. You can book this at any time and 7 days in advance by phone or app. The prices of the WestfalenTarif apply. Payment is made in the app (Paypal, credit card, direct debit) or cash in the car.
