Bike pumps no more

Krakow’s cyclists have probably used one of ZiKIT’s bike pumps at some point. The self-service points can be spotted around the city, a tool meant to help part of Krakow’s cycling population. After numerous cases of vandalism to these points ZiKIT has decided not to replace the stations anymore. The stations have often been stolen, sometimes a day after being replaced. At some of these points you can find completely devastated stations, or just the remnants of a pump or two. [Radio Krakow]
