Bett+Bike Sports

You're into mountain biking or road racing and have very special demands for your accommodation? Bike-friendly hosts in some German states hold the extra certification Bett+Bike Sports (Bett+Bike Sport). This seal guarantees exceptional security, service, care and equipment for sportive cyclists. Together with experts from the German Mountain Bike Initiative (Deutsche Initiative Mountainbike; DIMB), the ADFC has developed four categories of Bett+Bike Sports criteria: security, service, care and equipment.


There is a theft-proof room with generous space for your premium bike.


You can get up-to-date local weather information, purchase energy food and electrolyte drinks, and borrow or purchase special cycling maps.


A drying room ensures that wet sportswear can dry overnight. A laundry machine or the hotel laundry service is available for you. There is a separate washing area for your bike. If you want to go for a ride after your check-out, you can still take a shower until the afternoon.


There is a suitable room for doing repairs and adjustments on your bike. The available equipment includes spare tubes, patch kits, and special tools for sports bikes. If you need a spare part, the host can put you in contact with the nearest specialized workshop.

In addition to these minimum criteria, the Bett+Bike Sports certificate includes optional services, which can differ from place to place. Find more information in the profile of each Bett+Bike Sports host on this website.
