My list of demands ;-)

OK here's the latest on what you guys can do for me to help my project succeed and grow:

1) Introduced the combination lock system --> this means I am looking for some hof or backyard that is accessible to public 24 hours a day, in Kreuzberg/ Kreuzkolln area, and ideally offers some shelter from the rain... why? I don't want to the leave my bikes on the street overnight... any suggestions for such a location? Note that there would only be 1-2 bikes there at any one time (ie it does not have to be a huge space) as the turnover of bikes is so fast these days.

2) I need some team-mates to help me co-ordinate the project, as it is getting a bit complicated for me to  handle alone - any takers?

3) Also, to reduce the complexity of the system, I need people who have bikes that can join my "fleet" of bikes, but who are responsible for housing the bikes between pickups and meet the CSer when they are dropping back the bike.

Here's wishing upon a star :-)

Upcoming BVG and Polizei bicycle auctions - a great way to get your own bike.

Some of you may not have been in Berlin long enough to hear about the bicycle auctions that happen on behalf of Polizei and BVG every two months. Those bikes that are not claimed by their owners after an allotted time are sold off to the highest bidder at these auctions.

Having attended many of these auctions, I recommend the Polizei auctions as they are more organised and have a larger number of bikes on offer.
The benefits of buying a bike in this manner are:
cheap bikes - cheaper than flohmarktsproof of receipt - means you can sell off bike later more easilynot supporting bicycle theftit's an exciting atmosphere and gives you a buzz when you're the highest bidder  It is best if you go there with someone who knows what to look out for in buying a second hand bike, as they are of varying quality and a little bit about how numbers sound in German is a plus.

If you contact us at BSB, we may be attending and be able to help you out in choosing a suitable ride.

The next BVG …
