Campus bikes and cycling
Carrier bikes can be borrowed by Aalto personnel and all student events on Otaniemi campus.
Borrowing carrier bikes:
- From Dipoli, Otakaari 24, lobby ([email protected]) against signature. From the lobby you will receive the key of the bike, a helmet and a pump if needed. You can borrow the bike for more than one day, but remember to mention this when borrowing the bike, and also ensure the proper locking of the bike.
- From Väre, Otaniementie 14, lobby against signature (keys, helmet, rain jacket and a pump if needed)
The carrier bikes are in use from spring to fall, and stored during winter.
Otaniemi also has its own city bike stations. Check the city bike website for more information about the service:
Bike maintenance points
At these self-service work stands anyone can maintain a bike for free!
Aalto University has bought two fixed BFIX work stands. The maintenance points contain the equipment necessary for servicing a bicycle – pump station, maintenance stand and toolkit, and a QR code to a mobile guide. Using the work stand is free to anyone using a bike. The locations for the maintenance points are Otakaari 18 (Otaniemi) and Korkeakoulunaukio (in front of A Bloc).
Olli Ihamäki, phone 040 558 3317, sells used, maintained bikes in Kimmeltie 11, Tapiola. The bikes are given a warranty. In addition to this, the shop welcomes unused bikes for spare parts.
