Bike Share Program Provides Fun Cold Weather Alternative
There is no need to hang up your bicycle helmet as the seasons change; the City’s bike share program will remain available throughout the winter! Blue Ash enjoys many beautiful days during the colder months that will be ideal for riding through town.
Before you hop on a bike, here are a few tips for bicycling during the winter:
- Dress warm. Even in moderate temperatures, it is a good idea to wear gloves and a scarf to keep exposed skin comfortable in the wind chill. A headband or bandana can also be used as an ear warmer underneath your helmet.
- Take your time and stay alert. Look out for any areas that may look slippery and do not hesitate to get off the bike, if needed. Do not attempt to bicycle on ice.
- Stay visible. It gets darker earlier in the winter months, so make sure to wear something that will make you easily seen by drivers.
The bike share program, operated by Zagster, offers 50 bikes across eight bike stations that are available to rent for as little as $1. Riders can download the free Zagster mobile app to view stations, unlock bikes and pay for a ride today.
