The Perfect ŠKODA Cars for Cyclists

ŠKODA Cars for Cyclists

At ŠKODA, our journey began not on four wheels, but on two. Today, our “cars for cyclists” are a testament to a journey that marries our deep-rooted cycling heritage with the needs of modern cyclists.

A love for cycling is embedded in our legacy, starting with the creation of our ‘Slavia’ bicycle in 1895 by our founders, Václav Laurin and Václav Klement. Although we have transitioned from a bicycle manufacturer to a globally recognized automobile manufacturer, our devotion to cycling remains steadfast. This enduring passion is reflected in every design, ensuring that our vehicles are not just cars, but true companions for cyclists.

Our vehicles exemplify a fusion of our historic cycling ethos with the modern-day requirements of cyclists. The utility, ease, and safety they offer make them a cyclist’s reliable companion on the road. As we unfold the narrative of our cyclist-friendly car models, we are not merely showcasing vehicles; we are sharing a part of our rich cycling heritage interwoven with automotive excellence. Our commitment ensures that the camaraderie between cyclists and the road thrives, with ŠKODA as a dependable partner on this exhilarating journey.

The Significance of Cycling and ŠKODA’s Commitment

Skoda's Commitment on Cycling

ŠKODA’s commitment to the cycling community shines brightly through our sponsorship of the Tour de France since 2004. We have dedicated around 305 vehicles as neutral support vehicles, including the technologically adept ŠKODA Red Car, which serves as a mobile command centre for the Tour Director.

Moreover, our support was extended to the 2022 UCI Road World Championships , exemplifying on-road excellence for both cars and cyclists. The reinvigoration of the Tour De Femmes in 2022 further delineates our unwavering support for the sport.

Designed for the Ride: ŠKODA’s Cars for Cyclists

Our car designs are more than just an epitome of automotive innovation; they are a homage to our enduring love for cycling. With each model we craft, the legacy of our cycling heritage is thoughtfully interwoven. Key features such as lockable bike carriers and blind spot detection are carefully integrated to ensure a harmonious co-existence of cyclists and motorists on the road. These cyclist-friendly accessories and safety features not only echo our rich cycling legacy but also underline our continuous endeavour to bridge the gap between the cycling and motoring communities, making the road a safer and more enjoyable space for all.

The SKODA Superb Wagon emerges as an epitome of blending functionality with elegance, making it a preferred choice among the cyclist community.

One of its standout features is the ample space it provides, capable of accommodating two adult mountain bikes once the rear seats are folded. This ease of transport allows cyclists to venture out to new trails without needing a bike rack or carrier.

For those seeking more adventurous terrains, the 4WD option ensures a steady and safe drive to the starting point of your cycling journey. The option for lockable bike carriers adds an extra layer of security, ensuring your bikes remain safe and secure as you travel.

Being recognised as a Tour de France support fleet car, the Superb Estate has proven its mettle in the realm of professional cycling, a testimony to its reliability and practical design.
