"Say Hello to Cherry Blossoms" bike trip!

If you like to have a fresh start in Spring, don't hesitate to join us for a bike trip from Heidelberg to Schwetzingen on Easter Monday!

We can follow the development of the blossoms in Schwetzingen garden via this website and it seems that some blossoms are even out now :)!http://www.schloss-schwetzingen.de/de/schloss-schwetzingen/Bluehbarometer/409298.html

So hopefully they all come out by April 1st!

The ride will take about 2 hours each way and won't include steep uphills. So even a city bike would be good enough. But, please make sure that your bike is in a good condition for about 4 hours of cycling out of the town!

We would also visit the Schlossgarten in Schwetzinger which is famous for its cherry blossoms in Spring. There is a 7 Euro entrance fee for the garden. It is 3.5 Euro if you are a student (remember to bring your student ID along).

If you would like to rent a bike you can follow this link as Rienk also suggested: http://www.fahrradverleih-heidelberg.de/ . Just keep that on mind that Monday is a holiday, so please make sure that the shop is open.

I hope that we are lucky with weather but in case we have a rainy day we should postpone the event to another date as it's not so much fun to cycle in the rain.

Decided to join?...

Go and RSVP Now!

    Plenty of sun will be provided as an Easter special treat.

    Just phoned the bike shop. Here's the low-down on their Easter opening:
    - Friday / Saturday open
    - Sunday Closed
    - Monday, open ONLY for returning bikes (not for hiring them)

    So - if you'd like to rent a bike, you would therefore have to collect it on Saturday (and pay for longer than needed). If you'd like to do this nevertheless, the owner suggests sending an email to reserve in advance ([masked]), with your height and whether you would like a male or female style bike.

      That's a bummer for us bike-less people, but thanks for the research!

    Hoping the weather improves!!!! As long as it is not raining, looking forward to the first bike ride. I am using a folding bike Dahon so also want to confirm this is not a "fast" road ride--correct??? Thanks Elizabeth

    I could take on the challenge to organize it. I missed it last year and ended up regretting it. I've already been on a number of occasions to Schwetzingen by bike.

    This sounds great! I would love to join but I'm also traveling this weekend. Might I suggest we organize this for another weekend in April (as the last weekend in March is a holiday weekend)?
