The third season of Vilkku city bikes will start on April 26th
Popular Vilkku city bikes will be available on Monday April 26th. There will be 250 bikes available for the third season, and 35 city bike stations around the city. The city of Kuopio is prepared to add 1 or 2 city bike stations if needed.
City bike station at Mölymäki will be removed closer to the Savo Vocational College due to reconstruction work. Any other changes in the city bike stations network will be informed separately. More information on the city bike stations can be found from the Freebike app or from the website: https://kaupunkipyorat.kuopio.fi/map-of-stations.html
For this season the City of Kuopio is planning to raise the per-minute pass charge. The Urban Environment Committee will decide it at the meeting on April 21st. Other costs will remain the same, and you can cycle the whole season for the affordable price of 60 euros.
We also recommend using gloves while biking and taking care of good hand hygiene.
