Eagle launches green bikes project

Daily staff reportnewsroom@vaildaily.comEagle, CO Colorado

EAGLE, Colorado Bicycles will be stationed throughout Eagle for people to borrow to run errands or just ride around town thanks to a program spearheaded by the One Eagle business coalition. Two local bike shops, The Kind Bikes & Skis and Mountain Pedaler, will rehab second-hand bikes that are still deemed roadworthy for use in the program. The bikes will be painted green not only as a statement about the environmental friendliness of bicycling, but also to clearly identify them as part of the bike sharing program. There will be a code of ethics attached to each numbered bike, describing the program and explaining the rules of use. The green bikes program will officially kick off with a bike drop weekend April 18 and 19. Eagle County residents are encouraged to drop off their used bikes at either The Kind Bikes & Skis or Mountain Pedaler between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.. Anyone who brings a bike will get a 10 percent at either shop discount for the day. The first green bikes will be on display at the Eagle Party for the Planet Earth Day celebration on April 25. For additional information please contact Kelly Malin at: 970-328-5005, 248-755-8127 or malin@comcast.net.
