Summer just got more fun, you wanna know why?
Bike sharing app is back
“After a long absence, the return of bikeshare is underway in Cleveland. The red UHBikes bicycles and racks were removed late last year, and an updated system of black & blue bikes called HOPR will be taking their place. A limited distribution of the bikes is underway now, with a full implementation of up to 250 bikes expected very soon” (Bike Cleveland, 2020).
Grab your friends and go for a ride, the process is simple and fun! Headed to work? Grab a bike!

5 Benefits of Riding your bike
Whether you ride leisurely, professionally, or to work there’s enough room for all of us and plenty of benefits to go around!
1.Makes you Happier!
Daily exercise can reduce stress, alleviate symptoms of depression, improve sleep patterns for individuals with insomnia, and reduce anxiety. Furthermore, exercising outdoors proves to boost self-confidence and improve overall mood (Momentum Mag, 2020)
2. Increases productivity
3. Saves you lots of money
Biking to work, or even in general can save you lots of money.
“In 2015, the average American household is forecast to spend $1,962 on gasoline and motor oil. Shockingly, that would be the lowest average fuel expenditure in the US since 2009! Add on vehicle maintenance, the occasional repair, insurance, and the skyrocketing cost of parking, and you have an average yearly cost of $9,000 USD just to own a standard sedan in America” (Momentum Mag, 2020).
4. Sense of fun and freedom
“Explore the city at your own pace, try a new route, stop for coffee on the way to work and check out a new neighborhood on your way home. Cycling opens up avenues, both literal and figurative, to see your city in a whole new way. It’s your community, go live in it!” (Momentum Mag, 2020)
5. Improves over-all fitness
“Cycling improves cardio-vascular and aerobic fitness, lowers blood pressure, boosts energy, builds muscle, and improves coordination. Sneaking the health benefits of biking into your daily commute is so easy it almost feels like cheating!” (Momentum Mag, 2020)
