Cyclists saddle up to raise money for sick kids in their wake, but it’s the cyclists’ children who can take advantage of the bike share system by going door to door to help sick kids — including getting free bikes as a reward.

At their bike share station in New Brighton, one of the city’s oldest, you can walk around, purchase a free bicycle and get a bike helmet for the cost of $10. You don’t have to carry them as a passenger — they’re free.

At the end of each trip, a staff member will come out with a bike helmet for your child as a thank you — and they’ll bring you fre바카라사이트e food and drinks.

The statio더킹카지노n started about 10 years ago at 675 N. State St., which has now been enlarged. About 15 to 20 members of staff now help get everyone connected, including staff members from the new bike lane project on Broadway that was going 더킹카지노to open this summer and the first phase of the bike sharing system in South Shore.

“It’s really important that they know that their kids benefit from this and you’ll see kids riding around the neighborhood with their bikes,” said Kelly Smith, chief operating officer and deputy director of the New Brighton Park Association.

In July, New Brighton residents were invited to raise a couple million for the hospital by taking the first ride of their bike share system. So far, 4,000 people have ridden, with more to come.

On top of free rides for the kids, the program lets riders take advantage of discounts and coupons on a monthly basis to help ease transportation costs to hospital.

There are plenty of bike share stations around town. But the one in New Brighton is pretty special — for two years in a row, when it opens up again, riders can buy a free bike. So, yes, this is New Brighton.

It took less than a month for Smith and her team to make the announcement that the new bike share station would open in February. She hopes to make a full-size bike share available by March, but to be practical, those bikes will need to be re-sold at a discount.

The bike share line is connected to the neighborhood bike lane in the middle of the New Brighton Park Association. You can see the bike lanes on Broadway, and you can access a bike lane through the park by taking E 9th St. toward State.
