Bicing - Barcelona city bikes
Bicing - Barcelona city bikes. Bicing is Barcelona's public bicycle borrowing scheme for permanent residents only. Tourists cannot rent city bikes. Residents can register online to get a Bicing city bike membership card, which allows them to borrow bicing bicycles from 30 minutes to 2 hours. The cost is €47 a year (2014 prices) for an annual subscription. Visitors to Barcelona cannot use the bicing system.

Bicing works like this. You pick up your city bike at a bicing pickup/drop off location. Then you have 30 minutes to get to the pickup/drop off location near your destination. If you exceed the first 30 minutes then there is an additional and small automatic charge to your account for every extra 30 minutes. The maximum time you can use the same city bike is 2 hours. After that there is a penalty charge per hour for failing to drop off the bicing bike. After three penalty charges your bicing account is closed. In 2015 Bicing started testing electric city bikes.
