Things to know when you borrow a bicycle:
      • There is a 500 DKK refundable deposit for each bicycle loan.  However, if you do not have a danish address or health card, the deposit for each bicycle is a 1000 DKK. The deposit must be payed in cash.
      • The bicycles can only be picked up Thursdays between 17 and 18 o’clock
      • The bicycles can only be returned Thursdays between 16 and 17 o’clock
      • If you cannot pick up or deliver the bicycle in these opening hours, you cannot borrow a bicycle.
      • When you book a bicycle, you will receive a confirming email. The day before you pick up your bicycle, you will receive a text message reminding you of which bicycle you have borrowed and when it must be collected.
      • Read more about the requirements the bicycle library makes when borrowing a bicycle here.
      • You can borrow a bicycle for a week.
      • If you want to loan a bicycle for two consecutive loan periods, please contact us.

Our library is located in two black containers situated between Prismen on Holmbladsgade and Prags Boulevard. See on a map.

At Bicycle Innovation Lab we are in close contact with several of the bicycle library's users, and we follow their efforts in finding the bicycle that is best suited for their everyday life and needs. We have therefore made a video collection where some users tell about their experience in the bicycle library, and what effect it has had on their transport needs.
