New bike paths are being built and the Turia park is a perfect place to ride a bike. Therefore it’s no surprise that a lot of people in Valencia use a bike. Besides, it is a great way to discover this diverse city. We would like to welcome you in our brand new bike rental shop to experience it yourself!
Once Upon a Bike Rentals
> You can reserve a bike with the reservation form below!
In the most fun and hip area of Valencia you can find our own bike rental shop: ‘Verrassend Valencia & Once Upon a Bike Rentals’. The neighbourhood is called Ruzafa, on a five minute walk from Plaza Ayuntamiento. In the shop you can rent our comfortable, Dutch city bike. You can decide if you want the bike with or without a nifty (and pretty!) fruit basket to carry for example a towel, bottle of water, bag or maybe even your small dog. Good to know is that if you don’t want to carry your stuff all day with you, you can rent a locker. You can make a reservation.
Fun fact: each bike is named after someone. So if your name is Daphne, Tom or maybe Linda: you can ride your own bike!

Are you staying several days in Valencia and would you like to use a bicycle for a little city tour, but as well to travel from point A to point B? Then the Valenbisi system might be a very interesting possibility for you.
What is it?
Valencia offers around 2750 bicycles, spread among 275 stations in Valencia. You can rent these bicycles for short term, but also for long term. You can recognize the bicycles by the “Valenbisi” sticker on the bike. All bicycles have got a basket, an adjustable saddle and a biking lock.
You can choose between a long term card (you can rent a bike during the whole year, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day) or for a short term card (during 7 consecutive days, you can make use of the Valenbisi bikes 24 hours a day).
Where can I find it?
The bikes are distributed over 275 Valenbisi bike stations in Valencia. On Valenbisi, you can find an overview of the distribution points.
How does it work?
If you are going to use your long term card, keep in mind that you first have to scan your card and then enter your code. The first time you have to read the conditions of Valenbisi and then you will be able to choose a bicycle. During 60 seconds you have got time to push on the unlock button in order to get the bicycle disconnected of the bike station. From the moment on that you take the bike, you have got 30 minutes of free use. When you return the bike at a bike station, you need to connect the bicycle to a pole of the bike station. If you hear a bleep, then you know that the bike is connected to the station.
A short term card can be bought with a credit card at a station which exists of a credit card payment option. A long term card can be bought at the website of Valenbisi.
Long term card: Valid during one year for € 25,00
The first half hour is the use of the bike for free.
