KOLU is a public bicycle available to rent by citizens and visitors to Kočevje. In Kočevje we have many local roads with little traffic where it is possible to cycle relatively safely. That is why cycling is a very popular form of recreation in Slovenia. So why not choose cycling as a way to get to work or do your errands? Do something for your health and the environment and take a ride with KOLU!
Bikes from the KOLU rental system are available for use. We welcome all existing users to extend their membership, which can currently be done at the Cultural Center Kočevje (at the register of Kavarna KCK), at the TIC Železniška postaja Kočevje, TIC Jezero, TIC in Hostel Bearlog or at the cash register of the Municipality of Kočevje. All new users are also welcome to join the rental service.
You need a user card and a PIN code to rent KOLU bicycles. You can get them by registering and paying the annual membership fee. After payment, you can pick up your card and PIN code at one of the sale locations. You have to bring a proof of payment with you.
You can register and pay for the annual membership fee at one of the sales locations (TIC Hostel Bearlog, TIC Camp Jezero, TIC Železniška Postaja Kočevje, Cultural Centre Kočevje - Kavarna KCK or the Cash Register of the Municipality of Kočevje), for which you will need your personal document and tax number. Upon registration, you agree to the general terms and conditions, and you will receive a subscription contract to sign.
