One more bike added to our fleet

"California" was in a bit of pain as she arrived at the BikeSurf residence yesterday afternoon - partly from having a flat tyre and a bit of rust, but mainly from having been towed for 15 km with the flat tyre. Poor California.

But she's not shaken. Her luscious purple mane stands strong before any rust; no orange fleck of any size or shape can dismay her! Her wheels stand proud and inviting (and no longer flat) like two great, round eyes ready to wink at any CSer passing by. She is ready, citizens of the CouchSurfing world, to help you discover Berlin!

Take her for a ride for free by requesting here!

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 …
