There are bright green bike stations in several areas right now; including in front of Civic Plus, at the Bluemont Hotel, next to Varney’s and at the intersection of 4th and Leavenworth at McCullough Development.
According to their Greenapplebikes.com, each station will be home to five bikes, and there will be more than 40 of them once the bikes are all put together.
The bikes are 1-speed beach cruisers, with front brakes and a basket. You can borrow the bike for as long as you need, and when you are done with it you just drop it off at another green station!
“Bike share is an important part of Manhattan’s integrated public transportation network, connecting communities to more destinations across the city. Bike sharing is ideal for short distances, allowing users the ability to pick up a bicycle at any “self-serve” station and return at their convenience. Bicycle maintenance is provided by volunteers.” –Greenapplebikes.com.
