About Us

The Payex founder Max Hansson and Intersport tradesman Jörgen Berglund started VisbyHyrcykel in 1977, beside The east Gate, in the same place as it is today. The founders ran the company together until 1989 when the Berglund family took over ownership and operation. The Ericson couple, the present owners bought Visby Hyrcykel in 2005 and have run it since then.

During cycling holidays golden period in the 80´s many people came to Gotland to camp. Visby Hyrcykel opened every day at five o clock in the morning to meet the first arrivals from Gotlands Ferry in the harbour. Jörgen and Max had over 1500 cycles for hire at that time, compared with 450 today. Young people and families with children were cycle tourists at that time. The sides of the roads were full of cyclists and the camping places were overcrowded.

The Berglund brothers remember especially one family which should spend a week long cycling holiday. They had booked a bicycle for each person in the family and a small tent. The mother and father had three children, five suitcases, a guinea pig, goldfish and a budgerigar with them. They had to hire three trailers and some extra tents too.

Today we see a trend where the tourist wants to combine feather bedcovers and restaurant visits comfort with bicycle and disposable barbeque simplicity. People are hoping for different experiences during their holidays.

In 1981 our company expanded with the two Blue/Yellow mini trains. Our company has driven since then, much appreciated 25 minute guided round tours through Visby. Åke G Sjöbergs voice could be heard from the train`s tape, for many years. Today our passengers listen to Tina Marie Qwiberg. She tells us about Gotland in the past and present in a pleasant and exciting manner. Our guided tour suits both children and adults.
