If you have any questions or would like to know more details about our financial status, our documents are free and open. Please let us know what you would like to see.

We spent a total of 610€ last year to support the organization. Here is what we spent it on:



We put a total of 694€ in, and received 392€ in donations.
This year we would like to have all of our bikes up and running, well-oiled, secure and safe.
If possible it would be great to increase our network and have more bikes as well, our goal this year is to be able to have 30 bikes surfed at one time.

Currently we have a positive balance but only because of self-donations, which are not sustainable because we do not earn money from BikeSurfing. Our goal is to have a positive balance to be able to properly maintain our bikes and the system, but not to pay exorbitantly out-of-pocket.
Feel free to contact us if you have any ideas for business collaboration!

Upcoming BVG and Polizei bicycle auctions - a great way to get your own bike.

Some of you may not have been in Berlin long enough to hear about the bicycle auctions that happen on behalf of Polizei and BVG every two months. Those bikes that are not claimed by their owners after an allotted time are sold off to the highest bidder at these auctions.

Having attended many of these auctions, I recommend the Polizei auctions as they are more organised and have a larger number of bikes on offer.
The benefits of buying a bike in this manner are:
cheap bikes - cheaper than flohmarktsproof of receipt - means you can sell off bike later more easilynot supporting bicycle theftit's an exciting atmosphere and gives you a buzz when you're the highest bidder  It is best if you go there with someone who knows what to look out for in buying a second hand bike, as they are of varying quality and a little bit about how numbers sound in German is a plus.

If you contact us at BSB, we may be attending and be able to help you out in choosing a suitable ride.

The next BVG …

Feel free to print, distribute or send to all your friends or other interested parties. This will help BSB become even bigger in 2014 and hopefully inspire others to set up similar projects elsewhere.
