My partner and I recently visited Helsinki to go to Flow festival. We were staying in a hotel by the Opera house and are both keen cyclists so knew that getting around on bike would be the best option as the festival is a good 40min walk from the city centre, which only took about 10min on bikes. Having looked at various places to hire bikes it was obvious Bicyclean were the cheapest in the city but I was worried their bikes might not be as well serviced. After contacting the store via email before we arrived I felt assured they were a good choice and they certainly didn't disappoint! They had a really good selection of bikes and took the time to get us the right ones. They were in great condition and came with free helmet, heavy duty locks and a puncture repair kit. I think in the winter you also get free lights. You could also have a basket or rack for free if you wanted one.
The shop is run by a young couple who were really lovely and helpful, giving us advice on where to go to see various attractions. To top it off, they even came out to help me when I lost the key to my lock at the festival...I felt really bad about this but in my defence I know it was a total accident and I had been really careful! They charged me five euro to come out which I thought was very reasonable indeed!!
Really can't rate this place highly enough. It is really easy to get to from the main harbour area of the city. Looks a bit random on the map but is actually really easy to get to.
Very highly recommend.
