Listen to the podcast:

Spring has sprung in the Slovak capital! Visitors can take advantage of Bratislava’s bike-sharing service, which invites tourists to try sightseeing on two wheels. How safe and enjoyable is it, though? James Thomson was cycling around Bratislava before it was cool and he can compare the situation now to some ten years ago. He and Anna Fay have tried the bike sharing service, and they both have some tips about the best routes around Bratislava and some scenic rides around the Danube. While the shared bikes are a step in the right direction for Bratislava in becoming more bicycle-friendly, there is still room for improvement.
