Vaasa is a city of students and therefore a city of bikes. International students often prefer to rent a bike for getting around the city faster. There is a possibility that a student can rent a second hand bike from a good bike shop. The bike will cost about 80 – 200 €. Some shops offer a possibility to get some money back when returning bike together with the receipt. This has to be anyhow negotiated between the bike shop and the student in advance.
