  Washing machine for bicycles
by Nemorino

Now why don't we have something like this in Frankfurt?

In the Münster bicycle station there is a machine where for a mere EUR 3.25 you can have your bicycle washed -- just the thing for a lazy person like me. (Lazy when it comes to washing, not riding.)

By the way, the Münster bicycle station began operations on June 14, 1999, so they are now celebrating their tenth anniversary. At first lots of people thought the bicycle station was a crazy idea, but it's been a huge success, and now people in Münster can't imagine how they ever got along without it.

For us visitors, the bicycle station is the first thing we see when we arrive in Münster and come out of the train station, so it's a great welcome to the city.

    What a great idea with a bicycle wash! I have never seen one before, but should really need one (if the rain last night didn't wash away all dirt from my bike).

    Have never heard of this before! Good for mountain bike riders where the bikes get filthy!
