“Great Place to Rent Bikes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

My husband and I had a free day in Helsinki and walked to town from the cruise ship port. Behind the Uspenski Cathedral (the big red church with the gold domes), we went a couple of blocks to find Bicyclean. We're so glad we did because -they have wonderful bikes with baskets, locks and helmets included, -didn't require reservations, -spoke excellent English, -gave good route suggestions, -provided an excellent map, -charged very fair prices. We spend several happy hours seeing Helsinki and returned in plenty of time to wander back to the ship. Bicyclean is a little off the beaten path but they are well worth seeking out. Highest recommendations to them!

“Best way to see Helsinki”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Get a bike from Bicyclean and enjoy the ride by the coast across the islands. If you want a guided tour, there is one everyday at 11:00am. Really a good way to get acquainted with the city.

“Very good bikes and nice stuff!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

Thanks for this nice experience.
When we arrived in Helsinki by ferry this place was our first address. It is very close to the harbor and we thought about rening a bike, because it is the best way to get to know the city.

We had no accommodation and they helped us to find a hostel. We had no glue what we have to see and they gave us a map and a lot of tips and hints for bike-routes through the city.

I haven't see such a service and quality so often before. I can really recommend this bike rental.

Thanks Norberto!!

Regards,
the two Germans ;)

“Great way to see more of Helsinki”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Highly recommended by previous reporters which is why we chose Bicyclean and we were not disappointed, the service is first class from start to finish. From helping with the choice of bike and planning routes Norberto is excellent. Helmets available for hire. Helsinki is very bike friendly with good cycle routes around the city. Reasonable daily prices from Euro 19-29 per day. City map provided which has main cycling routes marked. Definitely a great way to see more than the city centre if you only have a short time here, as we did.
