Evanston IL Gets DIVVY Bike Share

Have you ever heard about DIVVY Bike share? It is a system where once you join you get access to nice bikes for a little riding around town by the hour. There are stations where the bicycles are set up and it is completely automated so you can get and return a bike whenever you want. So far this system is only available in New York City, Washington DC , Minneapolis, Miami, Columbus, San Francisco, Boulder, Boston, Houston, and Chicago Land.

Here is a photo I took today of a DIVVY bike station

There are different types of memberships available including one I think is really cool and that is the ability to share with a non-member and get to go for a ride with a friend for 30 to 60 minutes or so when ever you want. There is no need for a reservation. I think this sounds like a lot of fun and here is a link to the City of Evanston’s DIVVY program if you want to learn more about it.

See you on the bike path at the beach (maybe next summer when it warms up).
