How it works

The most efficient way to get around Oslo is on a bike. City bikes are primarily used for short rides and as a supplement to public transport.

How to participate

Feeling ready for a winter challenge? Send an email to post@oslobysykkel.no using «I need a winter bike» as the topic and we’ll continue the dialogue there.

Find a bike

You can find the closest available bike in the app. A bike can be unlocked all day.

Unlock

Tap «unlock» in the app when you’re close to a station. It will then tell you which bike is yours.

Ride

Ride as much as you want, up to 45 minutes at the time. The app watches the time for you. You can extend the rental for NOK 5 per 15 minutes.

Return

You can return your bike to any station at any time. The closest available docks are shown in the app.

Lock the bike

This winter we're locking the bikes to themselves. When at a station, select "End trip here". Wait for confirmation, and push down the lock in front of the bike. The front light will turn green and the bike will make a confirmation sound. Look for confirmation in the app.
