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.
