Helsinki travelers on bicycles will be able to find bike stations located on the flatland on a special map. For those who like to ride a bike around the Finnish capital, but do not like to ride it up, journalists of Finnish TV and radio company Yle have developed a special map with the most "flat" bike rentals.
Bicycle stations are divided into four categories, from the lowest to the highest - those that are located on the hills. They are marked with green, yellow, purple and red colors. In general, Helsinki cannot be called a hilly city, but the aim of the project is to make the life of cyclists even easier. The highest bicycle station in the city is located at an altitude of 34 meters above sea level, at the railway station Kapyla.
This year, Helsinki entered the top twenty cities for cyclists, ranking 18th in the rating. Among its achievements, the Baan track on the former railway tracks and the authorities' intention to increase the share of bicyclists among the townspeople up to 15% were stressed.
