Bicycle rentals and temporary bike paths in Moscow will run until December 1, if the weather conditions are suitable. Now the rental park has more than six thousand bicycles and more than 570 rental stations in 79 districts of the capital.
There are bike paths in Moscow not only in parks and recreation areas. The network connects districts and settlements, allowing you to get from one end of the county to the other without changing to cars or public transport.
New this year are the temporary bike lanes. In the summer they appeared on sections of Malaya Dmitrovka, Bolshaya Ordynka, Karetny Ryad, Gazetniy lane. As a result, there were 48 percent more cyclists in those places. And on Lesnaya Street, where they also made a temporary cycle lane, they began to ride 57 percent more often than before.
You can also rent scooters, there are more than three thousand of them in the city. The service is quite popular: if in 2018 the townspeople made only 140 thousand trips, then already in 2019 this figure increased to half a million.
