    Description
    Bicing is the 'community bicycle program' in Barcelona inaugurated in March 2007, similar to the Vélô service in Toulouse, Vélo'v in Lyon and Vélib' in Paris. Its purpose is to cover the small and medium daily routes within the city in a climate friendly way, almost without pollution, noise, traffic congestion. To use it one must acquire a yearly membership. Currently the network consists of more than 200 stations to lend and return the more than 3000 bicycles distributed throughout the system. The bikes can be lent from, and returned to, any station in the system, making it suitable for one way travel. Each station has between 15 and 30 parking slots to fix and lock the bicycle.
