FAQs

In a nutshell, how does it work?

  • 1. You search a bicycle in a specific city.
  • 2. You send a request to a bike owner in order to use their bicycle on a specific date.
  • 3. You meet the owner to pick up the bike. Bringing a small token of your appreciation is never a bad thing.
  • 4. Enjoy cycling.
  • 5. You return the bike in a good condition.

Do I need to pay when I borrow a bicycle?

No, you don't have to pay. The principle of BikeSharing is that people offer you their bike for free. If someone is offering bicycles for money, you can report the account to us through hi@bike-sharing.org.

What kind of bike can I borrow?

You can borrow any kind of bike listed by an owner. Our platform is already making a distinction between the most common types, such as a men's road bike or women's mountain bike, as well as tandems. The search page allows you to filter on these criteria.
