Overview

Donkey Republic is the easiest way to rent a bike in Copenhagen, with many hubs to pick it up from. You book your bike online, in advance or on the spot, 24/7. Then you use the Donkey Republic app to locate and unlock your bike – by connecting to its smart lock through Bluetooth. In other words, you’ll need no internet to unlock and lock the bike as many times as you want.

Easy to hire, download the app and away you go. Nice bike, the lock is on the bike so you just park anywhere, lock it and wander off - bloody brilliant. We have had a fantastic day cycling around Copenhagen.

I've seen a few bike rental systems before, but this was the most advanced one. Download the app, pay, and unlock. That's it. Some bikes are not working or cannot be found on the spot where the app shows, so make sure that there are...More

We rented 2 bikes during the day from them in Copenhagen via the app. While the app worked ok, we got 2 bikes allocated, of which one had no basket (all other 10 bikes at that stand had baskets!) and poor working gears. The app...More

This was the easiest bike rental I have ever encountered. Bikes were in good shape and cheaper than at the place we stayed at. Biking is the best way to see Copenhagen and Donkey Republic made is super easy.
