Guide Review – CityBikes in Helsinki

Helsinki CityBikes is a great free service for anyone to get around Helsinki by bike during the warmer months. Just drop a 2 euro coin as a deposit and walk away. There are 26 CityBike stalls in Helsinki, which you can use to collect and return bikes (to retrieve your deposited currency).

The CityBikes in Helsinki are enclosed in a Citybike stand; Using your own lock to store your bike elsewhere is frowned upon. (If you find an abandoned Citybike, you can get the 2 euro deposit by returning the bike to one of the Citybike stalls).

Helsinki has a CityBikes map that delimits the area of the city in which bicycles can be used. Don’t worry, it basically covers the entire city of Helsinki.

If you want to rent a bicycle helmet, which is not mandatory, but recommended for CityBikes, visit Jugendsali at Pohjoisesplanadi 19 in central Helsinki. Have fun cycling!
