It couldn't be easier
With some 3,000,000 rides per year, Hamburg is the most successful city in the Call a Bike network. It's also one of the cities where we offer cargo pedelecs.
Hamburg residents love their StadtRAD! Some of them share their experiences about it in the StadtRAD blog.
Stuttgart consistently backs efforts to link the city to surrounding areas with environmentally-friendly means of mobility. That works because our normal bikes are supplemented with 430 pedelecs for longer stretches.

The German consumer advocacy organisation Stiftung Warentest gives them top marks for safety. In Stuttgart and Hamburg, you can hire pedelecs and cargo pedelecs, as well.
Employees itching for greater flexibility when travelling on business, commuting to work or after clocking out for the day are increasingly choosing to cycle. Companies can help their employees along the way. Call a Bike for Business
