cologne sight-seeing by bike

imagine you spend a weekend in cologne, one of the oldest cities in germany. the sun is shining, the weather is hot and you'd like to go sight-seeing. no, you don't want to walk all the way. going by bus is a bit boring. calling a taxi? well, the price does not include a good view.

i found another option that should be great fun - it's called
the cologne conference bike.

this vehicle is a bike that transports up to seven people. one person is the driver who navigates and brakes. the rest may lay back and relax or support that kind person. the more people pedal and work together the faster they will get. there's no special approval needed to ride this bike as there is no motor in it.
you may also bring your own drinks and snacks with you as there is a cooler in the back to keep everything cold. so you can take a break at a place you like.

you can also rent a driver if you prefer joining the party and like to try a kölsch or two. you could also use the bike for an inspiring conference or just a fun meeting. it could become a bit edgy for the person driving backwards but i think you get used to itvery fast. otherwise take a break and swap seats. you can find all the technical stuff on the cologne conference bike website. that's where you can book and rent it.

have fun! if you need sight-seeing tips - you can contact me...
