Yesterday, The Trust announced a new free bike program for the 2014 season – Free Bike Mornings! From Monday to Friday. Visitors to the Island can now borrow a bike for free for one hour between 10 am and noon on weekdays. The program, riding on the success of Free Bike Fridays from previous seasons, offers visitors more opportunities for free biking than ever before and will make weekdays a lively place on the Island.
We also announced that Blazing Saddles has been awarded the contract to provide bikes to Island visitors. Blazing Saddles is a 25- year old family owned bike rental and tours business founded in San Francisco, that has stations in New York City, San Francisco, and Monterrey, California. They will provide a large inventory of kids and adult bikes, tandems and quadracycles for visitors to rent seven days a week (Gucci saddle bags will not be included :) ). Blazing Saddles responded to an RFP The Trust issued earlier this year.
Free Bike Mornings! From Monday to Friday will open on Memorial Day, Monday May 26. You will be able to rent bikes beginning on our opening day, Saturday May 24.
