Renting a Bicycle

A person riding a bicycle

Bicycle rental places are very common, and bikes are rented by the hour. They are fairly cheap; it isn't unusual to rent a bicycle for a week or more. You pay when you return the bicycle, so the whole process is based on trust. The renter is responsible for any breakage or tire punctures. While bicycles mix regularly with the stream of traffic, the cyclist should still be wary of traffic. The pedestrian paths are for pedestrians only; bicycles are not allowed on those paths. Bicycles are commonly used by locals for transportation, grocery shopping, etc.
