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!
** NOTICE: As of November 9th 2020, we have temporarily removed bikes from the KOLU system due to upcoming winter, since low temperatures can cause breakdowns. Bicycles for rent will be available again in the spring of 2021. Thank you for your understanding!
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, Cultural Centre Kočevje Box Office 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. You can pay the annual membership fee in cash or with a payment card at registration or prior by money transfer to the bank account of the Institute Kočevsko SI56 0124 8600 0000 531 (purpose: KOLU membership fee), and bring a proof of payment with you when registering.
Each user can use KOLU for up to 14 hours per week.
