You may lend a FREE city bike for 24 hours by means of your mobile phone – and you do not have to register anywhere.

Just send a SMS with the stand’s ID number to +45 3137 8444, if you have a foreign mobile phone – or to 1944 if you have a Danish mobile phone (please see description and  illustration below).

You may return the bicycle to any available city bicycle stand. You park the bicycle in a vacant stand with a green light glowing. When the stand’s red diode is on, the bicycle is automatically locked. You receive a confirmation via SMS on your mobile phone for returning the bicycle.
