Bycykel, Fredericiagade 15A, 1310 København K Tlf: 88826498
This is smart concept for bicycle rental in Copenhagen. It is based on similar car rental schemes found in many countries. What you do is reserve a bicycle on the Bycykel website and you rent for an hour at a time. The cost is 25kr per hour (plus credit card fees) or you if you live in Denmark, you can set up a monthly fee for only 70kr and only pay 6 kr per hour. If your trip is under 30 minutes, there is no charge with the subscription. You have to register on their website and than you can see where a bike is available and collect it there. Best part is that the bikes are electric, so it makes cycling so much easier. You can also connect with Bikify and take one of several city tours which include the bike rental.
City Bikes, Copenhagen. This is probably the cheapest way to get around Copenhagen on a bicycle. But there are pros and cons to this rental. The City Bikes are basically free bikes that are placed around Copenhagen in bike racks to be by tourists and visitors. There is a slot to deposit a 20kr coin. When the coin is inserted the lock is disengaged and the bike can be ridden around town for as long as you need it. When you are finished, you return it to one of the many bike racks, insert the lock and your 20kr is returned to you. The cons to this enterprise is that it is often hard to find a bicycle available, since many citizens use them instead of their own bicycles. The bicycles are often mishandled and you will find many bikes that are not rideable. (broken chains, missing seats, etc.). Plus these bikes are not the most comfortable to ride. Okay for a short trip, but after an hour or so you will probably not want more.
