In order to facilitate for the participants we have pre-booked rental bikes from a bike rental firm in Denmark.
The bikes will be rented from a firm located in Skagen.
List of participants who have requested rental bikes
Standard 3 speed internal gears, solid Danish touring/citybikes, puncture proof tires (as if…). They are classic bikes with three gears and coaster brakes. They are equipped with lights and bells. The bikes comes in 2 models male and female frames and in one colour Black (so bring something to personalize your bikes with, flags, easy-come-off-stickers, teddybears to ziptie unto them..what do we know…
Standard lock is provided with personal key (now you see the need for personalizing…I parked over there and I have a Black bike..ohh)
There are no additional accessories so you will need to bring your own helmets, bike bags/panniers, bottle holders, saddle covers etc. If you want to buy this in Oslo the cheapest and simplest option is to visit XXL Oslo Sentrum – same price in shop as on website, Storgata 2 (map). There are other shops if if you are more particular about brands etc, for example Oslovelo, Nordre Gate 20b, with limited shop hours.
110 Euro (less than 10 Euro per day) The payment is to be made cash on delivery in Oslo so please bring the correct amount. Skagen cykeludlejning may be able to accept payment in advance through digital means (you’ll recieve any information with this when you receive your contracts)
Up to 68 bicycles will be delievered in Oslo on Tuesday 1st of September at 8.00 a.m. The address for the delivery is Rådhusbrygge 1, Rådhusplassen. At the end of Akershusstranda.
