Olsztyn – Bike Hire

I saw that the bike hire scheme in Manchester was suspended last week because of the amount of vandalism which had taken place. I somehow can’t imagine that being a problem in somewhere like Olsztyn, but perhaps I have an image of Poland that isn’t realistic.

Anyway, the bike hire scheme here looks pretty developed despite it being a recent innovation, and there are numerous stands located around the city centre and the suburbs. It’s quite a new scheme for the city, having been introduced in the summer of 2018, but it looks like it’s popular given the number of bikes that I’ve seen being used around the area.

The pricing looks a little complex, but it doesn’t seem too expensive, just the equivalent of a few pounds to cycle around for a bit. I’m not really a cyclist (I find it far too tiring), I’d rather just walk, but it’s nice to know that the option exists for those who want it. There’s information about the scheme at https://orm.bike/.
