BikeLNK is teaming up with Lincoln City Libraries to offer free access to bike share through the new Check Out A BikeLNK program. Starting today, library card holders can check out a BikeLNK pass and helmet at the Bennett Martin Public Library location. Library card holders can check out a BikeLNK pass for 7 days. When users check out a pass, they will receive a BikeLNK fob, helmet, and an instruction sheet to help get them riding. Our station located at 14th & N St is conveniently across the street from the Bennett Martin Public Library branch for easy access to the bike share system. If riders are loving the pass, the pass can be renewed once per check out. All library pass materials will be disinfected after each check out to ensure the health and safety of program users.
This partnership was made possible by a grant from the Community Health Endowment of Lincoln with the goal of making healthy activity and active transportation more accessible for the Lincoln Community. Check Out a BikeLNK riders can find station locations listed at station kiosks or on our website at www.BikeLNK.com. The BikeLNK fob gives access to both classic and electric pedal-assist bikes. If they choose to use an e-bike, the user needs to turn on the bike with a button located on the left-side of the handlebars to get the assist. Once a rider starts pedaling, the electric-assist will match the rider’s power to make biking a breeze.
We are extremely excited about the new Check Out a BikeLNK program and proud to provide Lincoln with active transportation and healthy activity. We have increased our cleaning protocols in response to COVID-19 and have been reminding riders to follow social distancing guidelines when riding through our social media channels.
