SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (June 23, 2021) — GREENbike, Salt Lake City’s non-profit bike share system, and the nonprofit’s title sponsor, SelectHealth, are offering free GREENbike rides to the public on Saturday, June 26. On Saturday, all Salt Lake City residents and visitors will be able to ride GREENbikes for free during the 24-hour period by using the promo code “2021” at any of GREENbike’s 47 stations. After using the code, riders can take as many 30-minute trips as they want during the 24-hour window.
“SelectHealth is invested in our community. Supporting air quality, recreating, and getting around town are some of the benefits of riding GREENbikes. Enjoy a free ride day powered by SelectHealth,” said SelectHealth Sr. Public Relations Manager Greg Reid. “GREENbike supports our mission of helping people live the healthiest lives possible.” Over the past eight years, GREENbike riders have offset more than 5.97 million pounds of CO2 from entering the air and prevented more than 6.58 million vehicle miles from impacting local roads. GREENbikers burned nearly 80.7 million calories—roughly 283,248 slices of pizza—in the process. The local non-profit bike share system is dedicated to offering the community an affordable, convenient, and sustainable transportation option. “Thanks to SelectHealth’s generosity anyone interested in taking a GREENbike for a spin this Saturday can do so for free,” said GREENbike Executive Director & Founder Ben Bolte. “Whether you’re a frequent rider or haven’t tried a GREENbike yet, we hope this will give folks a good excuse to get out and enjoy a free bike ride this weekend.” To find a GREENbike station, download the BCycle app or go to https://slcbikeshare.org/station-map.
