Smooth ride for launch of Hirebikes at St Marks in Lincoln

19 May 2015

To celebrate St Marks sponsoring a new Hirebike station near the shopping area, cyclists will be able to make their own smoothie while pedalling away as well as gaining top cycling tips from Dr Bike.

The launch event will take place on May 22, between 11am and 2.30pm when shoppers will be able to try out the Hirebikes and learn more about their benefits and how to use them.

Dr Bike will be on hand throughout the event to explain how to maintain and repair bikes. Shoppers will also be able to pedal their way to a delicious smoothie made in a blender attached to the back of the bike.

Senior Project Officer for Access Lincoln at Lincolnshire County Council, Paula Colburn, said: “This event is the perfect opportunity to come and find out more about Hirebikes and the benefits of cycling in general ahead of the Lincs Cycle Challenge next month. Access Lincoln is working hard to bring better sustainable transport options to the area and the Hirebikes are a perfect example of this. We are also looking for sponsors for the Hirebikes and would like to hear from any local businesses who would be interested in finding out more about our sponsorship packages.”

Valerie Johnson, St. Marks Centre Manager added: “Here at St Marks we’re proud to be a Hirebike sponsor and a collection and drop off point and are ready to welcome the Access Lincoln team for our official launch. The Hirebikes are a brilliant asset to Lincoln and I think St Marks will benefit dramatically from being a sponsor.”

The launch will also highlight the three-week Lincs Cycle Challenge, set to start on June 8, which sees cyclists rewarded for the miles they cycle by giving them freebies, offers and discounts.

Sponsorship packages are available for other local businesses which would like to sponsor a Hirebike station or bikes nearby.
