Nashville BCycle to host inaugural ride on July 28 to celebrate the return of bike share to Nashville
Nashville, TN – July 22, 2021 – Nashvillians can celebrate the return of bike share with an inaugural e-bike ride on July 28. Hosted by Nashville BCycle and open to the public with RSVP, the event will include remarks by Walk-Bike Nashville and Council Member Freddie O’Connell, a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and a short e-bike ride for all attendees.
The event takes place outside the Nashville BCycle office at 206 Anne Dallas Dudley Blvd in Nashville at 12:00 on July 28th. Nashvillians are encouraged to join the celebration, which includes a ribbon cutting ceremony and a short e-bike ride near the Capitol. Attendees can register in advance at nashville.bcycle.com.
In April, BCycle LLC and the Nashville Downtown Partnership announced the return of bike share to the city of Nashville with an upgraded, all-electric bike fleet. Nashville BCycle closed in Spring 2020 due to COVID-19 and now returns thanks to a new partnership between BCycle LLC and the Nashville Downtown Partnership.
“This new fleet of pedal-assist bikes will make it even better to visit Nashville’s businesses, enjoy some outdoor exercise or ease into a no-sweat commute with increased mobility in and around our city,” said Tom Turner, President and CEO of the Nashville Downtown Partnership. “For downtown, I think we may see more employers and employees think critically about last-mile mobility solutions, and e-bikes are another tool in the toolbox to make that a realistic option.”
Wednesday’s event precedes the soft launch of Nashville BCycle at a limited number of stations. Before Nashville BCycle reopens, riders can renew their previous memberships in the BCycle mobile app or online at nashville.bcycle.com. Riders can choose from a number of available pass types for riding to fit their routine and riding needs.
Nashville BCycle, under the management of BCycle LLC, will continue to operate in partnership with the Nashville Downtown Partnership, the nonprofit management association that has managed bike share in Nashville since 2012.
