Tony Valente sends in this report on bike-sharing in another Spanish city.



In Segovia, home of one of the world’s best-preserved Roman aqueducts, the question quickly became: where are the bikes? Segovia’s system OnRoll had multiple stations throughout town, but no bikes could be found.

Reading the information at one of the stations it appeared none of the bikes were electric, which is unfortunate in this hill top town with very steep grades. The system required users to have a functioning mobile phone and register in a local office. Clearly no one in Segovia has seen what it costs to roam abroad for Canadian mobile customers.

The cost of riding? Three Euros per day per bike. Sadly, no bike ever was found to try in Segovia and the registration system was a real disappointment.


Segovia info point for bikes … but where were the bikes?
