Community Bike Program Becomes A Reality

The Town of Golden and key community members have been working for over 3 years to create a new community bike share program. Today, the town liaison announced that the project is in full swing with 25 being ordered and will be sending them to be custom painted in the next three weeks. The bicycles will be assembled and maintained by Summit Cycle, our local Kona dealer.

In the coming weeks a decision will be made on hub locations, payment methods, and locking systems (a few options are currently being considered).

This is hopefully a stepping stone for further developing an active transportation network of trails and on street commuting lanes.

There will be much more info in the coming weeks. I'll keep you posted.
