In Linköping, bicycles are the preferred transportation for all students, whether it’s the sunny summer or the brisk winter season. Typically, the roads are kept free from snow during the winter months. Therefore, we highly recommend that all exchange students consider acquiring a bicycle, as it is both the swiftest and most cost-effective means of getting around Linköping.
For affordable bicycle options, we suggest exploring the ESN Fleamarket group on Facebook or visiting a website called Blocket, where you can find well-maintained bicycles. Additionally, there are numerous smaller shops in the area offering second-hand bicycles, albeit at slightly higher prices. Lastly, you might explore Biltema in Tornby, where new and reasonably priced bicycles are available for purchase.
