About

At MyHotelBike, we adore cycling, embrace diversity and challenge ourselves to develop a more harmonious world. We see cycling as the most intuitive, planet-friendly way to commute from one place to another. With that in mind, it’s our aim to inspire governments to improve cycling infrastructure in their cities and for people to choose the bicycle as their number one mode of transport.
