Fort Collins aims to increase bicycles for transportation

The city of Fort Collins, Colorado, received a federal grant to pay for a new bicycle lending program. According to city bike coordinator Dave Kemp, "We are encouraging daily trips around Fort Collins by a bicycle instead of a car. We're trying to make it easy to bike instead of use a car. We want a clean city to live in."

The Fort Collins Bicycle Library, scheduled to begin in early 2008, will make 50 bikes available for free use from various locations around town. The program, a joint effort between FC Bikes and Bike Fort Collins, will offer road bikes for the business person who wants to bike the commute rather than drive, cargo bikes for anyone who needs to deliver packages or take items with them and cruisers for those who are looking for a recreational trip.
