Earlier this month the city of Kiev launched a pilot of its first bicycle rental service, allowing residents and tourists to get around the city easily on two wheels.

German company Nextbike opened the service, installing 8 docking stations across the Ukrainian capital.

Some 20 bicycles will be available to rent during the test period, which runs until 31 October 2016.

If successful and adopted permanently, it will be the country’s second municipal bike rental scheme following the launch of Lviv’s in 2015.
