  • Ride Longer with BikeLNK!

    by Jes Slavin | Jun 01,2020

    BikeLNK has seen over 80,000 trips in the past two years and received feedback from many of the riders. Based on user feedback and data from the past two years, we are changing up trip length and our casual pass structure.

    As of today, June 1, 2020, all pass types come with unlimited 1-hour trips. This is an increase from the original 30-minute trip. All trips longer than one hour, regardless of pass type, will now cost $6 per additional hour. This change comes with no price increase for the Visiting Voyager, Monthly, or Aluminum Access membership types.

    We are also retiring their single trip pass, formerly the Quick Tripper Pass, and replacing it with the Capital Cruiser which comes with 24 hours of unlimited 1-hour trips. This means, no matter what pass you buy, you can now ride as many times as you like as long as your trips are 1 hour or less. More information about all pass types can be found on our Rates Page

    BikeLNK is 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.

  • BikeLNK COVID-19 Response

    by Jes Slavin | Mar 13,2020

    Due to the recent actions being taken to slow the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community, we wanted to update you on what we are doing and measures you can take to stay healthy.

    To help keep our riders healthy we will be enacting the following protocols:

    • Our Technicians staff will be disinfecting all user contact surfaces, including but not limited to: station touchscreens, dock buttons & RFID fob readers, bike handlebars, brake levers, seat & seatpost adjustment clamps, on a routine & scheduled basis. 

    • Our Management staff will intensely monitor our various Customer Service networks, to respond in real time, to any issues or concerns of our users.

    There are some simple steps you can take to protect yourself when riding bike share:

    • Wipe down the bike with disinfectant, just like you would any public surface

    • Wear gloves or mittens while riding as a precaution

    • Wash hands thoroughly after riding and avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth before washing your hands

    Social distancing is a useful tool to slow the spread of this disease and bike share is a great way to commute as it helps with this social distancing. When possible, opting for single occupancy transport, like bike share, can help reduce your risk as opposed to traveling in shared vehicles.  To learn more about COVID-19 and other precautions you can take, please refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization

    Bike Shares across the country have been stepping up to provide alternative single-occupancy transportation to help keep our communities healthier. The Better Bike Share Partnership just published a great article that you can read about bike share and COVID-19. Check out their post, Coronavius: When All Else is Contaminated, Rely on Bike Share. It contains information on precautions to take when utilizing bike share and how this mode of transportation can help with slowing the spread of the virus.

    We will be continually monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), federal agencies, and local agency guidelines. Together we can help keep our communities healthier.


  • It's Electric - BikeLNK launches demo fleet of 5 electric pedal-assist bikes

    by Jes Slavin | Mar 02,2020

    BikeLNK is powering up with five electric pedal-assist bikes in March and April. E-bikes are the newest bike sharing technology that have helped systems across the country increase ridership and become just a bit more fun. We are excited to have the bikes in the system for two months to see how the community responds- we think e-bikes will not only bring more rides and even more smiles.

    The five bikes are a demo fleet of BCycle Electric bikes which assist riders as they pedal up to 17mph. The this powered up demo run is being sponsored by Allo, provider of lightning-fast fiber. There is no additional cost to use an e-bike, you just need a valid BikeLNK pass. To get the assist, you need to turn on the bike with a button located above the screen on the left-side of the handlebars. Once you start pedaling, the electric-assist will match the your power.

    We plan to have a “home base” station for the bikes to be at each day to ensure they rotate around the system. That way everyone can get a chance to experience the joy of electric-assist while out riding. The bikes will start at the “home base” station each morning and be brought back to the station three more times throughout the day. On Monday, March 2nd, the bikes will start at the 11th & P station located right outside Embassy Suites. We suggest using the BCycle App to locate the e-bikes which will be shown with a little lightning bolt symbol on the station icon.

    These demo bikes are the same model as the 90 electric pedal-assist bikes in Omaha's bike share system, Heartland B-cycle. In Omaha, the e-bikes have been met with much enthusiasm causing Heartland B-cycle trips to increase by 118%. BCycle systems across the country have had great success with implementing e-bikes and we expect the Lincoln community to have a similar reception.  

    You can take a ride on a game changing electric pedal-assist bike from BikeLNK starting Monday, March 2nd and they will be available until the end of April. E-bikes can be located using the BCycle App or follow us on social media to see what station the bikes will be “home based” on that day.  Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to get the latest e-bike updates.

  • New Station at 8th & P!

    by Jes Slavin | Feb 12,2020
    The corner of 8th & P just got even better with a brand new 10 dock BikeLNK station. Conveniently located by the bike corral, it is the perfect station to ride with your friends to all your favorite Haymarket businesses. It's now easier than ever to use BikeLNK to hop over to the Farmers Market, grab some coffee, or explore the amazing eateries on the Southeast corner of the Haymarket District.


    The station was made possible by a Lancaster County Visitors Improvement Fund Grant which provided the funds for the ten dock station and five bikes. Visitors and locals alike will benefit from this new station, it is just a few blocks North of the N Street cycle-track and one of three stations located within the Haymarket District. The placement of the station behind the bike corral is especially perfect for those riding in groups with a mix personal bikes and BikeLNK bikes.

    With this addition, BikeLNK now has 21 stations and 105 bikes for locals and visitors alike to ride around town. Station maps are available at each kiosk and live maps can be found on our website and the BCycle App. A 30-minute trip costs just $3 with longer term passes available that include unlimited 30-minute trips, with trips longer costing $3 per each additional 30-minutes. Passes can be purchased at the kiosk, on the BCycle App, or at on our website

    We are extremely excited about this new addition to our system. Stop by 8th & P to check it out yourself and let us know what you think. We know you're going to love it.

  • BikeLNK named a Platinum Bicycle Friendly Business by the League of American Bicyclists

    by Jes Slavin | Jan 15,2020

    Today, the League of American Bicyclists recognized BikeLNK with a Platinum Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB) award, earning it a place alongside 1,366 businesses across the country contributing to the movement to build a more Bicycle Friendly America.

    By kicking off the New Year alongside 153 new and renewing BFBs, BikeLNK joins local businesses, government agencies, and Fortune 500 companies in all 50 states and Washington, DC, in a commitment to transform American workplaces to be more welcoming to customers and employees who bike.

    “When places make it easier for people to choose to bike, they are building safer, stronger, and better connected communities. The League of American Bicyclists is thrilled when organizations like BikeLNK  join us in this movement to build a more Bicycle Friendly America. When more people are biking to work or shop, life is better for everyone,” says Executive Director Bill Nesper of the League of American Bicyclists. 

    An important part of a growing trend not just in Lincoln, but nationwide, is recognizing how important supporting bicycling can be for building better, safer, more connected communities through bike friendly accommodations. BikeLNK encourages bicycling as an easy option for transportation, not just via bike share, but by also providing various amenities to its visitors and staff.   Safe, indoor personal bike parking, discounts for bicycle parts & commuting accessories, continual access to bicycle & safety education classes, along with various advocacy/community volunteer opportunities to give back to the Lincoln community.

    “Healthy, vibrant communities are made up of the strong connections between the people within it. Biking does just that!” says Jamie Granquist, BikeLNK City Manager. “You experience Lincoln on another level, with all 5 senses, taking it all in. Places that support varied transportation options for patrons and employees, show that they are not just invested in active, healthy living but a better environment for all. We are better, TOGETHER!”

    Moving forward, BikeLNK will have access to a variety of tools and technical assistance from the League to become even more bicycle-friendly. When employees bike, great things happen: through bike commuting we decrease our carbon footprint, connect to our community, and it makes for a fun and healthy work culture.
