Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9809254A2] The invention relates to a method of making bicycles available in several storage places (1), as well as to a storage place for storing bicycles and to a bicycle (8) for use with the storage place. The making available of bicycles (8) in several storage places (1) is done by the users of the bicycles, and to that end a control system (6) exists, to which the user makes it known to what destination he intends to ride, whereby a storage position (3, 14) is reserved in a storage place (1) located near said destination, so that the user will be able to place the bicycle (8) in a storage position (3, 14) intended for that purpose again, which storage position is connected to the control system (6). In order to make it possible to place the bicycles in a storage position in a simple manner, said storage position is fitted with a lockable lever comprising a clamp, in which the bicycle is locked in position by moving the lever.
