      Where's the best place to get a bike?

      by scoobydoofast Online Now Sep 9, 2016 at 9:04 AM

      Hi all,

      I've just started an exchange at OAMK, and I have missed out on getting a bike because I thought I didn't need one. Silly me! Now, is there anywhere around Oulu where I can get a bike for around 40€-50€, second hand if necessary?


      (Also, Hi to my mother who posted the question below me!)

      Good day! My husband is coming over for work in Oulu on January 2015. We are from the Philippines, and are wondering what are the things that he need to pack for a 3 month stay? Any tips on what to watch for, go to, try, and enjoy during his trip? Also, what do you suggest that he bring back home (local delicacies, etc)? Thank you so much!

      Pubs for darts in Oulu

      by gubbi1 Online Now Nov 28, 2007 at 12:34 AM

      are there any pubs where it is possible to play darts? I play E-dart, so not with steel tips. But if there is none, I would also be happy with steel darts.
      Let me know if there are dart teams in Oulu...
      Thanks, Christian.

      by elsebeth Online Now Aug 13, 2004 at 11:34 AM

      I had a friend from there some time ago. she was studying in denmark and we became quite close and i eeven got invited to her wedding. then we drifted apart, but she posted a message on my homepage asking if I still had her emailadress, which I didnt. so I found it rather weird question. so I was wondering if there is anyway of finding a person from Oulo? I was trying to search online but obviously I dont speak finnish. So if anybody can help me finding her I would be forever grateful..
