TAKING THE CITY ON TWO WHEELS

Last year, we spent a weekend in Barcelona. After a night out with too many beers and too few tapas, we simply had no more energy to shuffle along the city’s streets flitting from sight to sight the next day. Said and done, we just boarded a hop-on, hop-off bus and travelled around the city. At the end, we felt sick anyway and would’ve preferred to explore the city at our own pace.

As a visitor to Vienna, you almost habitually use public transport to get from A to B, you walk, you take a taxi or the mentioned sightseeing bus line. But there’s an alternative to bicycle rental services, public transport and car sharing services: now, there’s an option for motorcycle enthusiasts visiting the city, to explore the imperial Habsburg city on two motorised wheels. Mo2drive is a scooter rental service in Vienna which allows you to rent iconic Vespas throughout the city. A mobile app will let you locate a scooter in the city and unlock it easily through your smartphone. Then, there’s nothing stopping you from exploring the city on two wheels, avoiding traffic jams and overcrowded trams and buses.

We would’ve liked a similar service to discover the city on a motorbike during our stay in Barcelona – the wind in our face, experiencing the pace of the metropole and feeling like being part of the city you’re only visiting for a few days. Actually, anyone on a city break wishes for that: getting to know and seeing the city from the perspective of a local. However, it doesn’t quite work this way. At least in terms of travelling in Vienna, Mo2drive makes you feel at home a little bit more.

For people living in Vienna, getting annoyed by traffic jams or people in the tram who forgot to put on deodorant or munch a smelly kebab: try Mo2drive – maybe it’s the alternative you’ve been looking for the whole time :-)

For all the people who love to ride a motor scooter, we are giving away 2 vouchers, each worth a free registration and 50 free riding minutes + 25 parking minutes! Just answer the following question by email at media@riserapp.com: how many underground (U-Bahn) lines are there in Vienna?

The winners will be drawn at random from all correct entries received by Monday 17 September and will be notified by email!

TRIUMPH TIGER 1200 - A TEST BY MOTORRADMAGAZIN

The dried-up river bed blurs in front of my burning eyes. Drops of sweat tickle on the scalp under my motocross helmet. Even the Gore-Tex membrane seems to have long since given up its mission of allowing water vapour to pass through to the outside of my riding suit. In the sauna, now would be the time to pour water onto the rocks. But it’s late autumn in southern Spain and I never thought I would get so sweaty when riding a motorcycle at just over ten degrees Celsius...

Which is where I want to watch the sunrise. Getting there at 5 o’clock, as bright orange glow starts to hit the Horizon...

*Bohemian Paradise - Česky Ráj* is the name of the country just behind the border, it is almost untouched by tourism, and yet it is so beautiful that one can cry 😭 Behind every corner there is a castle, there are endless curves, even mountains (our Austrian calls it 'high hill'), quirky hamlets, caves to ride in and beer in exact temperature specifications.
