The air is crisp, a palpable chill in the atmosphere signifying the arrival of a new season in Bratislava.
In autumn, few things rival the simple joy of walking through one of Bratislava’s many parks, littered with crisp linden leaves, but if you can withstand the sometimes shiver-inducing breeze, this season is best experienced on a bicycle.

I have made the trip to Devín, one of Bratislava’s most popular boroughs, several times by bus and on foot, but I’ve never attempted it on a bike. So, on a clear and cool day in October, I paid €36 (€6 + €30 refundable deposit) for a daily ticket on the Slovnaft bike sharing website, entered the pin code I received via email into a bike at the Promenáda Riverpark bike station, and started cycling towards Devín Castle.
