New bikes for Avalon
AVALON Waterways has added bicycles to its entire European fleet of river ships, with the light-weight foldable cycles able to be quickly deployed to allow guests to explore local villages and riverside scenery under their own steam. Manufactured by Tern, the innovative design incorporates recycled aluminium and environmentally friendly materials. Six bikes are carried on the larger 135m vessels, and five on the 110m ships, and they are made available for guests to reserve at no charge along with maps, helmets and drinking water.
The onboard bikes complement a range of regular cycling excursions already available on many itineraries. Avalon’s 2017 European programs also include a range of Active Discovery cruises which feature opportunities to bike, hike and canoe along the Danube, according to Globus Family of Brands marketing manager Chris Fundell.
