The long-awaited Pyöräkeskus – Bicycle centre – opened at the Narinkka Square in Kamppi in 2012. The services include emergency repair, facilities that allow cyclists to service their bikes, and information. There is also a supervised bike parking area.
The Bicycle centre provides space for various organizations to hold events. The centre is a convenient departure point for cycling tours and a good place to present bikes and accessories.
A rental bike is a convenient and pleasant way for visitors to get to know Helsinki. Bike parking serves commuters who wish to arrive to the centre by public transport and move on by bike.
The centre’s repair service helps with punctured tyres and chains. There is a pumping station that can be used free of charge.
The Bicycle centre is organized jointly by the City of Helsinki and entrepreneurs. The City provides the facilities including containers to house operations and bike racks. The commercial services are provided by private businesses, largely by Kampin Suutari and Greenbike. The Bicycle Centre design is by Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. The Bicycle centre is one of the City’s activities to promote cycling.
