Just in time for the COP22 climate conference, the medieval Moroccan city of Marrakech recently debuted a robust bike-sharing scheme that makes 300 bicycles distributed across 10 ren- tal kiosks available for 24/7 public use.
Moroccans claim you can identify someone as a true Marrakech local if they own a bicycle. The streets of this north African city were once full of ardent cyclists, but in recent decades they’ve been overtaken by scooters and cars that swarm the city’s congested roads.
With 320 brand new bicycles docked in 10 key landmarks and available 24/7, the environmental friendly project also taps into an old cycling tradition in the city.
You can take a Medina Bike in one of our station all around the city. Be careful Ferblantiers station (6) and the railway station ( gare ) are unavailable at the moment. Check out our Bike map for updates.
For information you can meet us at our shop at the COP22 station ( green zone entrance) from 9.30 to 6 pm.
Every day our MEDINA BIKE ambassadors welcome you at our stations !
Enjoy Medina Bike !
