If you've already found ‘your’ bike shop around the corner, that's worth a lot. They know you and your bike, you can get impeccable service, personal contact and a hot coffee. But it's even better if you can sit on your bike directly at your trusted bike shop and enjoy a great Tour. In pretty much every GIANT store, the employees would love nothing more than to go on a ride with you and show you the best routes themselves. But, of course, that’s usually not possible – after all, work comes first. That’s why we’ve put together this Collection for you. Here, you can find eight wonderful Tours which start either directly from the door of a GIANT store or not far from one. You can also ride directly from home without a stopover at the bike shop of course, too.
These eight Tours are set in the west of Germany. The main protagonists are wonderful bicycle routes and the GIANT stores in Düsseldorf and Wegberg. Some Tours start directly at the shop, the others are super easy to reach by train. In this Collection, we show you an exciting ‘mining Tour’ through the heart of the Ruhr region and, contrastingly, a panoramic Tour with amazing green views over the metropolis. From Düsseldorf, you can explore the Rhineland, enjoy beautiful cycle paths directly along the river and cross over many impressive bridges. Even more varied Tours await from the town of Wegberg, as you ride through the Maas-Schwalm-Nette Nature Park with picturesque mills, dreamy castles, idyllic rivers and short detours into Holland.
Most of the Tours are quite long, so you’ll be on the road for several hours. But, that’s no problem at all on an e-bike. If you run out of time (or breath), there are usually options to shorten the trip. If, on the other hand, you can’t get enough, you can combine the different Tours together and extend your adventure. On the way, you don’t need to worry about an empty stomach: there’s no shortage of places to stop for refreshments. All eight Tours are ideal for spontaneous trips, with or without an appointment at a bike shop. Why not pop into your local GIANT store, treat yourself to a hot coffee and look forward to a wonderful day on your bike?
This tour is one thing above all: typical Pott! And few things represent this region more than the bygone era of mining.

Bike Touring Highlight
Only recently, at the end of 2022, the GIANT Store Düsseldorf moved from Herzogstraße to the now much larger premises in Königsberger Straße. The old name "GIANT Cycling World" is all the more program here, you really find the whole world of GIANT. Of course, this starts with the complete range of GIANT models from mountain bikes and touring bikes to modern e-bikes and the Liv sub-brand.
In addition, there are also a lot of accessories and of course the large service workshop, in which there is always a little "Schnack" with workshop manager Florian. The store is in the east of Düsseldorf and is a great starting point for tours to the Rhineland and the Lower Rhine.

Bike Touring Highlight
In addition to bikes from GIANT, you get the all-round program here: from bike fitting and bike service to the right clothing. And while you're here, it's best to get on your bike right after your visit to the shop: There's really good cycling in the area around Wegberg, for example in the Maas-Schwalm-Nette Nature Park.
