The green bikes are coming, the green bikes are coming…to Georgetown! May 1 marks the launch date for the 2010 incarnation of Green Bike Project. Originally started last year as an earn-a-bike pilot program– 200 bikes and riders found their way into the commuting community. Some 120 people were able to earn a bike by reducing their single occupancy vehicle trips by 60%. The success of the program means that the remaining bikes have returned for another shot at going home with their lucky new riders.
South Seattle Community College- Georgetown campus will be the site of the launch event May 1 from 9 to 3:30. Employees from selected companies will learn how to use the trip log software, receive and get fitted to the bikes and learn commuter road basics.
We will have mechanics and League of American Bicyclists-certified instructors on hand to lead the way and make sure that cyclists get up to speed and roll out come Monday morning.
