What is “teilEsel”?
Share bicycles for free, to get from A to B in the spontaneously! We use a resource, that is sufficiently available: Unused bicycles, which many people store in their basements and sheds.
The concept is easy. Old bicycles become a second chance and will be available for public use.
The teilEsel community checks these bicycles and paints them completely yellow, so they are recognizable for everyone as “teilEsel”.
On the website or in the app, every user can find the location of the teilEsel-bikes on a map. You can pick the one you need in your neighborhood, book it and get on the bike.
At the end of the ride, you post the location of the bike so that the next user knows where he can find it. Any malfunctions of the teilEsel-bike can me reported and the teilEsel-team will take care of its repair.
teilEsel is a excellent example of shareconomy and puts hope on every single user. The careful use of the bikes and the dedication of its users is important. As the offering is for free, the project needs a lot of helping hands to repair and maintain the teilEsel-bikes. The community also plans collective workshops for maintenance.
The free interpretation of our guiding idea: „Out of old broken bicycles, we produce cool urban vehicles for everyone!“
