Bicycle auction on October 13th

 

On October 13, there will be an auction of  abandoned and unclaimed bicycles at the University of Freiburg. Help us give these abandoned bikes a second chance to be used instead of being directly disposed of. Members of the University of Freiburg (employees and students) have the opportunity to bid for the unclaimed bikes, which may often have some small defects or broken parts.
