Fort Colins Bike Library

This was Emailed to me and I found it rather interesting.  So I thought I would let others know through my blog.

Here's an excerpt from Rick Price's notice of a lunchtime meeting:

Café Bicyclette in Old Town – this is the beginning of the Fort Collins Bike Library, a project that brings together, FC Bikes (the City Bike Program), the DDA (Downtown Development Authority), RamWheels at CSU, the Fort Collins Bike Coop, and several other partners.

Beginning Friday (July 13) you can borrow a bike for friends, family, visitors for up to 24 hours from Café Bicyclette in the former information kiosk near the fountain in Oldtown. We’ll talk about the program and the fact that we need volunteers every weekend: 4 – 8 p.m. on Fridays and 11 –

6 p.m. Saturday and Sundays. Maybe your Scout Troop, service club, bike club, or neighborhood association would like to volunteer to fill these time slots? We’ll talk about it at the BLT.

'Cafe Bicyclette' is by the goose fountain.
