ReRide program in Cheyenne promotes healthy living and sustainable transportation

The Downtown Development Authority board of directors recently approved of a $5,000 grant to go toward a bike-share program in Cheyenne. The pilot program, Re-Ride, is set to kick off April 1 and continue on through the end of October, while the DDA evaluates its level of sustainability. The idea is to allow Cheyenne visitors and citizens an opportunity to borrow a bicycle for free and experience the downtown area in a new way, promoting a healthy lifestyle. Bikes can then be returned to any of the seven bike stations when they're done. Bikes stations will be located at seven different locations across Cheyenne; The Cheyenne Depot, the State Capitol, Freedom's Edge Brewery, the Laramie County Library, Lions Park, Holliday Park, and the Comea Shelter of Laramie County. ​*Local man, Dr. Davis, donates bike to Rock On Wheels for Re-Ride program.
