Americus promotes recreation through bike share program

Posted: Updated:
AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

If you're taking a tour of Americus, stop by the visitor's center, and rent a bike.

It's all part of their new bike share program. The city was able to purchase about two dozen bicycles through a grant.

People can stop by the visitors center downtown to pick them up. They have bicycles for adults and children. The cost  is $10 for a few hours, or $30 for the entire day.

 "Well we are always striving to be a healthy community, because a healthy community is a better community where people will choose to come and live, so we are wanting to improve the health care and wellness of folks who live here and our employees," said Chief Administrative Officer Laura Lee Bernstein.

They expect to have the bikes ready to rent in a few weeks.
