New Bike Share Program with Oak City Cycling!June 10, 2014 12:34 AM
HQ Raleigh will provide its members with an eco-friendly approach to commuting in downtown Raleigh. HQ partnered with the Oak City Cycling Project earlier this month to develop a bike-sharing system for the entrepreneurial community. Located in the Person Street District, Oak City Cycling Project is on a mission to get as many people on bicycles as possible through sales, service, and a commitment to outreach in the community.
The bike share includes a dozen Public brand bikes, which arrived at the space today. Bikes will be available for hourly or daily check out to members and their guests.
HQ Raleigh and Oak City Cycling hope the new bike share will empower members to choose smart commuting options when heading to downtown-area meetings and events. The bike share program is part of HQ Raleigh's effort to become a B-corporation, incorporating socially and environmentally conscious practices into their business operations, and supporting local ventures such as Oak City Cycling Project. Additionally, the bike share collaboration will enable both organizations to continue their community-building efforts across downtown.
