"You must pick up a CityBike" Free bikes Tip by daveland

Free bikes, Copenhagen: 28 reviews and 33 photos


Make sure you have a 20KR coin with you and when you find a bike rack with dangling chains plugged into a funny loooking bike (normally blue or red with adverts on the wheels), put in your 20KR coin, release the chain, and it's yours to bike wherever you want. You get the 20KR back when you retun the bike to any CityBike rail. It's a great way to see what is probably the most bike friendly city in Earth. Bike lanes are everywhere and everyone seems to be riding one.

The only problem you'll face is that you won't have a chain for it and so you can't easily go inside anywhere while you have your bike. I (wrongly) thought I might be safe leaving it among the seemingly hundreds of bikes left without chains but when I left the cafe I found I was in for a long walk back ;-)
