A new retro bike rent service has opened up in Kyiv Shevchenko park recently. You can pick up your city transport any day from 9AM to 7PM until mid-September. The first hour costs 50 UAH, and then 30 UAH per hour.
The most popular ones are pink bikes, say the service provider. Right now, you can hire one of the six adult bikes. The bikes for youngsters are expected to become available too.
Viktor Kuzmenko, the service provider:
A retro bike hire is a design idea. First of all, everything retro is trendy now. And secondly, these are city bikes, and their design is considered to be the most comfortable. Many think that there are retro bikes for men and for women, but actually, this single design was the most popular in the 80s. Amongst our bikes the pink ones are the bestsellers, – girls love them. Since we have just opened up, we rent out about four to five bikes a day. This number will increase as we are approaching the mid-summer, a great time for cycling.
