Everybody likes to ride downhill

©Barry Sandland/TIMB – Villo stations are not all equal.

“They are heading back to another location up there. Everybody likes to ride down the hill. I have to take them back up.”

Photographer’s notes: I hear this a lot about City Bikes. People who rent them enjoy the pleasure of coasting down  hill to the city centre. The depots fill quickly – but few and fewer people want to ride back up the hill.

The Velo Ville staff have the regular task of rearranging the supply of bikes – and the bikes get a motorised trip back to their superior position.
