Each bicycle stand consists of maximum 30 bicycle stands, depending on the location in the city. The bicycle stands are fitted with a locking device, glowing indicators, audio signals and card reader.
The lights indicate if the bicycle is vacant or not. Red light = vacant bicycle. Green light = vacant bicycle stand.
When returning the bicycle then place it in a stand with a green light. When the light in the stand glows red the bicycle has been placed and returned correctly, and the bicycle is locked. Subsequently, you will receive a confirming SMS on your mobile phone that the bicycle has been delivered correctly.
However, if it happens, having locked the bicycle correctly, the indicator glows red and the bicycle is locked, but you did not receive a SMS, we kindly ask you to contact us on the number stated for the city in question or to send us a SMS.
Service teams with special tools – just around the corner
Several times daily our service teams supervise the city’s bicycle stations to remedy moving about bicycles or localisation of possible defective bicycles. Depending on the extent of possible damages the repairs are handled on-site, e.g. a bicycle with a defective tyre, handlebar basket etc.
In case of broken lights or brakes the bicycles are automatically removed from the stand to be repaired at our workshop.

Blind spots are the first cause of cycle accidents – so watch out! Blind spots correspond to the full right and left length of vehicles, leaving drivers unable to see anyone cycling beside them. Lorries and buses have significant blind spots, where cyclists are invisible. Therefore:
- Make sure you are always able to have eye contact with the driver, which is a sign that they are able to see you
- Never pass a vehicle on the left
- Keep your distance from all vehicles
- Avoid stopping too close to the front of a Lorry or a bus – either drive in front of the vehicle, making sure to be seen by the driver, or even better:
- Stay behind and WAIT until the vehicle has undertaken its right turning
- Remain visible at all times
