Biking in Bratislava?

I'm considering a couple of days bicycling along the Danube, in different directions from Btaislava. I am a good swimmer but haven't been on a bike in many years. Silly question here: does anyone know if it's flat along the Danube / Bratislava or are there hills? I want to enjoy a leisurely pedal - not interested in grinding up hills.

We took a train from Budapest to Bratislava last fall that ran mostly along the river, and it was pretty much flat the whole way. I assume any bike trails would be the same. Certainly the area along the river right in Bratislava is flat.

You should be able to use Google Street View to get a real view or two.

I haven’t done this section but according to this map it is indeed pretty flat:

Hi, Bratislava is quite flat, but there are small hills around, but there is "barrage" where locals go cycling... Petr?alská hrádza ? Mini okruh | Moje Slovensko
