How Do You Find A Bike ?
There are many stores that one may optionally buy a brand new bicycle, rent or get a second hand one. For new bikes you can pass by and see the Radsport Wagner shop located in Zillnerstraße 14 or even the M&M shop just near the Alpenstrasse, at the Michael Pacher Strasse 19. If a new bike is not in your budget you can always go online to the ÖH- Salzburg official page, there you can find a market for various items including bikes. Another interesting point is the flea markets held in the city, the local police hold twice a year sales for all unclaimed bikes and confiscated bikes – amazig !. Just recently there was a big spring event called the ‘AK-Radbörse – Salzburg’, whereby 1614 used bikes were offered this 2017 and more impressively around 1100 were sold. What more can we say, Salzburg is one of the easiest, fun and free places to have a bike.
