Making your way around Latvian capital Riga is set to become much easier following the launch of BalticBike – the city's first self-service bike rental.
From the very heart of Riga at the Town Hall Square it will be possible to get on two wheels at a moments notice thanks to the initiative that has been launched by airBaltic.
Bertolt Flick, airBaltic President and CEO: "Every decent European city has bike rental stands. We are glad to launch the first BalticBike stand in Riga following the successful launch of BalticBike rental service in Jurmala. Now residents and guests of Riga will also have a chance to enjoy summer in the city by using rental bikes."
The scheme is very simple. You pick up the bike in one stand, use it as long as you wish and then return it to any BalticBike stand. The rental prices will be charged for every ongoing hour and the payment shall be made with a credit card.
