Red Shared Bike

Like numerous European cities, Hamburg has a bicycle sharing system. It seems this lonely red bike was left in front of our hotel istead of being returned to its station.

On Tuesdays, just post any photo you like (it must be one of your own) that contains the color RED and then link to this blog.

  1. London’s just started a bike-sharing scheme though they’re not red! Sigh 😦

    Happy Ruby Tuesday,

    LOLA:)

    btw Mine this week is HERE. Hope you can stop by.

  2. Actually, this is a service offered by the Deutsche Bahn (the German train company). You can leave these bikes everywhere and when someone comes by and wants to use it, they just have to call the number on the side of the bike and they will open up the lock for you. (I think you have to provide a credit card number or something like that.) This service also exists in Frankfurt (where I live) and many other cities.

  3. Sounds wonderful. I can’t imagine such a system in New Jersey. Not enough bike paths – too easy to get hit by the many, many cars we have. At least we can walk in our own town.

  4. One’s got to admire environment friendly systems like this.
    In our town you may borrow red umbrellas in the city center shops.
    That tells more about the climate that anything else.

  5. Bike sharing – surely this one wouldn’t be looked having been left. So, does the sharing part mean you could hop on and go?
    Not to sound negative but I can’t see that working here in the US although I’d love to be proved wrong.

  6. Oh, I miss that about Europe. All those bikes. I’m sure in some areas of Cleveland it exists, on some smaller level…

    Lovely picture. I love the contrast between the red bike and the gray surroundings.

  7. Fantastic photo! Yes, London has just started a bike scheme – they’re quite stylish bikes, but have the Lobdon Transport logo and the name of a famous bank on them (I guess they’re sponsored!).
