Copenhagen City Bike

    Newer Older

    A fine example of the Copenhagen City Bike. These bikes are found around the city and require only a 10 or 20 kroner coin to borrow them - just like a shopping trolley system.

    Merely return them to one of the many specially designed bike racks around town.
    The wheels all feature adverts for various companies.

      Vélib model, "typically French" system for public rental Bicyclette:
      1credit card and to read carefully a 7 page contract. The first 30' are for free, each hour cost 1EUR. Every time you ride it 150 EUR are charged on your CC as caution fee and returned back as soon as you park the bicycle back.

      Which system is better? Point of view...

      Hi Kulbe,
      I have heard much about this new French system. Every initiative regarding 'bikes for the people' are good.

      Seems, though, a bit complicated. I have read some message board on Newsweek's website where some Americans were pissed that they don't have modern chips in their credit cards like the rest of us - even the Chinese have chips in their credit cards... :-)

      They have the same system in Brussels.
