    The place for cyclists!
    Love the bikes! So many cool vintage bikes in the shop to check out. This is a must if you’re a cyclist of any kind. The place fosters a great cycling community. The service was wonderful. We were there on a slow and cloudy day and chatted with the owner for a little bit. The bike route he recommended was perfect for our skill level.

    Gravel bike rent for loop around Lake Brienz.
    We had a great time renting bikes with Yellow Velo Interlaken. We had mountain/gravel bikes which were just perfect. We were given great advice and a map on how to go around Lake Brienz. The route was so beautiful and a great challenge for us. I would really recommend this place f you would like to rent bikes in Interlaken. The shop was great to look around too.

    Bike rental/route advice
    I went with a group of friends and Tommy was so friendly and set us up quickly with our bikes. Helmets and gloves were just an extra 2 francs each. He gave my friends and I a couple of route options and the route we did was absolutely beautiful, pretty easy too. I recommend if you want an easy outdoor experience and see lots of nature!

    Friendly, Helpful and Knowledgeable!
    Yellow Velo was recommended to us by our hotel, so we decided to go with them and rent two bikes for a few hours to ride around Interlaken and the surrounding lakes. The Staff were so friendly, helpful, and knowledgable, providing insight into both tours and routes we could take, as well as providing all the necessary equipment and knowledge needed before we embark on our journey. They provided an online map as well which was helpful in keeping track of where we were on the route. Overall a great experience and we highly recommend them to anyone wanting to travel via bike around Interlaken!

    Amazing experience renting bicycles to cycle around Lake Thun
    Relative beginners to cycling, rented 2 bicycles for the whole day from Yellow Velo to cycle around Lake Thun from Interlaken. Amazing service from Tommy who was very friendly and helpful. Gave us great in-depth advice and suggestions regarding the route and bicycle safety. Clearly passsionate and highly knowledgeable about his craft. The views around Lake Thun were amazing although the road cycling at times felt dangerous.

    Great value and a fun explorative activity with the family!
    Rented 4 bikes last minute from Yellow Velo on New Year's Eve, 2023 and did a self-guided tour. We were very pleased that it was open on this day and that bikes were available. Owner was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We were provided with the necessary accoutrements to ride around the lakes in the cold. Next time I return, I'd definitely do the guided tour with the owner. Great value and one of the highlights of our trip to Interlaken!

Beautiful experience biking around Brienz lake. We got two well equipped bikes and the owner of the shop could suggest us some possible bike tours according to our expertise level, other than giving us useful advice. Strongly recommended (also in Winter times)

Well-designed route to run through the best of Interlaken (2 lakes, river, canal, old town, farmhouse etc) and very professional/humorous guide! Best part was having hot chocolate near lake Brienz :D!

We would absolutely recommend this 2-hour tour if you've just arrived in Interlaken. Both lakes are absolutely stunning, we visited a 13th century fortress with views of the mountains, a stunning old town, and we even had a hot chocolate by Lake Thun to top things off. Couldn't fault it at all. The owner is very friendly and helpful, and gave us loads of useful information about the area. The bikes themselves were lovely to ride and clearly well maintained. 10/10!
