This was one of three city bike "stations" in Porvoo. Locating beside R-kiosk near the Old Porvoo. Tenders still exist and is free to use with anyone with the bicycle.
Citybike tenders were used a few years until 2009 and was organized with public-private partnership. Project was ended due the vandalism to the bikes. Red colured bicycles were free to use with small coin pawn. At the end of each season bikes were usually found vandalized or thrown in a Porvoojoki river. Sad.
