ColumBIKE offering free summer-time rides

The ColumBIKE bicycle rental program is going free for the next three months, thanks to the sponsorship of SIHO Insurance Services

The not-for-profit program will be offering two-hour bike shares for free in May, June and July. Organizers say you can rent a bike at any of the eight stations around the city. You will have to enter your debit or credit card and a promo code of 417 to take advantage of the free two hours. After that you will be charged the regular $3 an hour, or you can check your bike back in and start the two hour clock again.

The bikes include a front basket for storage, automatic lights and fenders, skirt guards and chain-guards to keep clothes clean. ColumBike bicycles are specially designed to fit people of all sizes, thanks to an adjustable seat post.
