Serious cycling

Get on your bike!

summer-bikeKiel and Schleswig-Holstein are ideal for cycling. Cycle lanes are maintained throughout the city and plentiful across Schleswig-Holstein. It’s simply convenient – no searching for parking spaces, no waiting for the bus. If you are still bikeless, there are a lot of options for acquiring a bike. Many bicycle shops sell second-hand bikes.
The only thing you cannot do without is a heavy-duty bike lock to prevent your bike from changing hands inadvertently. If you only need a bike for a few days, you can rent one; ask the bicycle shops, many rent out bikes. There are quite a few shops in the university area, best ask your fellow students for their favourites.
There is also the bicylce clinic  Fahrradselbsthilfewerkstatt near the main campus of Kiel university: You bring your bike, show the friendly staff members what the problem is and they show you how to fix it yourself and help you.
