Bike maintenance station - bike friendly work place
Did you know that the Municipality has a bike maintenance station in Stadsträdgården? There you can wash, dry and fix your bike and pump up your tyres. The station is open 24 hours a day, year round, and costs nothing to use. So take the opportunity to service your bike.
