Bikes are available in the Czech Republic (Prague, Brno, České Budějovice, Prostějov, Krnov, Žďár nad Sázavou) and in Slovakia (Bratislava).

Bike parking

At the end of the ride, please park your bike in the parking spots agreed with the city. These are bike racks, marked and as unmarked spots on the streets. They are shown on the map in the Rekola app as .

Returning the bike outside the parking spots is subject to a fine of 500 CZK or 20 €. Don't worry, the app will warn you in advance if you try to return outside and advise you to move the bike.

When parking in unmarked spots (you can check the spot photo in the Rekola app), please make sure your bike does not get in the way of wheelchairs, strollers or visually impaired people. Inappropriately parked bikes will be dealt with and we will warn users who are doing so.

Unlimited Rekola bike for 24hrs

How can I activate the bike for 24 hours for 399 CZK in Czechia or 13 EUR in Slovakia?
In the Rekola application, go to the Subscriptions and benefits section. For the 24-hr Package, click the Details button. And then on Activate the package.

Who can use the Package?
Anyone. Works as a supplement to any tariff and benefit. You can use it with Lítačka, MultiSportka and subscription.

What does the Package allow me to do?
For a period of 24 hours (e.g. from 14:00 to 13:59 the next day) you get one very long ride or any number of shorter rides on the bike in the price of the package. For example, you can go on a long afternoon trip on Saturday and another on Sunday morning.

The package only applies to one rented bike at the same time, if you are interested in renting two bikes at the same time, the standard price list applies to the second bike. You can see the time until the end of the package in the Subscriptions and benefits section. You can ride the bike outside the city, but at the end of the ride you must return the bike to one of the designated parking spots (marked as P in the app).

You can swipe between the bikes you have just rented. You can tell them appart by their number and name under the lock passcode.

How to pay for rides?

Before you can rent a bike, you need to enter your payment card in the Rekola app OR add Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Just enter your card into the app after registration via payment gateway. You will need to pay 1 CZK or 0,01 € at the begining to verify your card for future payments (rides, bike reservations etc.).

Payment gateway accepts most of debit and credit cards.

Adding Apple Pay or Google Pay is faster, just approve payments through this payment method in the app (fingerprint, Face ID, etc.) and you're good to go.

Bike reservation

You can reserve your bike in advance for 15 minutes. Open Rekola app, find the parking spot where you would like to rent the bike and tap on it. Select the bike you wish to reserve and tap on the Reserve bike button.

What does the name Rekola mean?

We started with recycled bikes which were donated by other people (RE as recycled and KOLA as bikes in Czech, therefore REKOLA).

Right now we are providing new bikes. But still every bike has its own name, you can look them up in the app :)
