There are more bikes than last year and the first 30 minutes you can ride on Imatra for free.

The first bikes arrive already in the last week of April, and 2.5. the system is fully functional. The number of bikes has been increased since last year. Vuoksenniska, Sienimäki and Karhumäki will also have bike stations.

The city offers cyclists the first 30 minutes

- It's great that we got more bikes this year and stations in more residential areas. Now it's worth taking advantage of half an hour of free time, in that time you'll be pedaling a long way on Imatra, traffic engineer Aino Vuopio encourage.

5.5. is national city bike day, when Imatra's city bikes are also available for free for six hours.

KaaKau Oy is responsible for the delivery and maintenance of the bikes

- The bikes are serviced twice a week, and the maintenance days can be increased if necessary, the company's operational manager Antti Lääperi says.

The bike model is the same as last year. During the winter, the bikes are repaired and refurbished for the summer season.

- Bicycles can be brought into the street scene when the brushing and cleaning of city streets is at least mostly completed, so that our bike station is not in the way of cleaning, Lääperi mentions.

The bikes are available at Imatra until the end of October.
