Biking in Stockholm


We decided to rent bikes today (we bought a three day pass, highly recommended) to tool around the city. They have a great system here not unlike the one in Paris, except that the bikes seem nicer and in much better shape, and it costs less. For three days it is only 26 bucks to rent a bike, and it is an excellent way to get around the city when the weather is good. You use a card to check out bikes from any of a large number of stands around town, then just put it back at any other one when you are done, and the system recognizes it and locks it into place. You can check out a bike between the hours of 6am and 1pm with no limits to time spent on them (unlike the Paris system). Josh and I had a beautiful ride through lovely parts of the city today, check out the pics for a few shots of the tour we took.
