Ljubljana has established a bicycle system called Bicikelj since 2011, with 84 stations and 840 bikes. Bicycles are available all days of the year (24/7); the first hour is for free. When registered and subscribed, you can use it without any limitations. Stations are some 300 to 500 meters apart and connected via terminals. Bicycles weigh 20 kg and have anti-theft and anti-vandalism protection. Stations are easily accessible (near shopping malls, bus stops, and so on) and ideal for overcoming short distances. It is easy to rent and return a bike with this system. You can register into the system weekly or yearly through the website.
