Bicycling from Vienna to heurigen? Melk?

Jump to last reply

We will be in Vienna for 5 days (from this Sunday) and i thought a nice change would be to bicycle *on our own* to some points of interest outside the city, particularly one of the heurigen areas (hopefully less-touristed, e.g., perhaps not in Grinzing) and Melk... but I'm struggling to find information on how one might do this. I see there are bike rentals and tours but with all the paths in the city I was hoping we could manage on our own (we tend to avoid tours/tour groups as we like to keep our own schedule, etc.).

Would love some guidance on if this is a reasonable option, that is, the ride isn't too arduous or long (we are very fit but will be in decent 'street' clothes and don't particularly want to be offensive to others!) and if so, the routes we would take (directions/which paths to take and their respective access points). We are staying near Stephansdom.

Thank you in advance for suggestions!
