Before renting a bicycle, it’s good to know some things about this service. This article is to summarise all the relevant information in one place.
1. The storage place (“shop”)
The rental service operates in an office with storage place in the Anděl neighbourhood of Prague, by the riverside. There is no shop front and no direct access from the street. When you are in front of the building, you knock at the window or ring the (bicycle) bell to have the door opened. The entrance for the bike rental is located around the corner, at number 1, Lesnicka street.
2. Opening hours
We’re usually open daily from 11h to 20h (11 am to 8 pm), except Thursdays and Fridays (12 to 20h). If you need your bikes earlier, you can pick them up the previous day and keep them overnight. The rental fee per day is for 24 hours. However, you need to store the bikes safely, ideally inside your building.
3. Prices – rental fee and deposit
City / hybrid bike: Czk 250 (EUR 10) per day
Trekking bike: Czk 320 per day
Vintage road bike: Czk 450 per day (NO OVERNIGHT RENTAL)
- deposit: Czk 1000 (or 40 Euros) and the copy of a document
For long-term rentals (over two weeks), discounts of 20 % and more.
If you want to rent the bikes for only 4 hours, that’s fine, but the price is the same as for the whole day.
4. The bikes
Most of the bikes are second hand, vintage bikes and differ in size and equipment (breaks, gear shifting systems). If you are unexperienced as a cyclist or prefer modern, multi-gear bicycles with disk breaks, you should try a different service.
5. Additional equipment
Locks will be provided free of charge, deposit Czk 500. Helmets while stock lasts for free, deposit Czk 500. Basic repair kit upon request.
