When was the last time you rode a bike? Was it when you were five years old around your neighborhood, or perhaps to get to school? Cycling as an adult isn’t just an intense, sweaty spin class at the gym or that pricey Peloton bike. If you’re recalling the good ol’ times but not ready to make the commitment of buying your own bike, then RTC Bike Share may be your ride down memory lane.
If you don’t already know, RTC Bike Share is a public bike share system in downtown Las Vegas. You can check out a bike from any of the 21 stations for up to 30 minutes and then return it to any station. Heading to lunch, coffee or a meeting? Driving and finding a parking spot may take more time than it’s worth, so why not try a bike? It’s there when you want it, and gone when you don’t.
Downtowner Scott Sasaki has taken full advantage of the bike share benefits since May 2017, and gets his entire team on the bikes. They don’t have to worry about sweating in between meetings either, because just this past summer, we introduced 20 electric bikes as part of the fleet, so they do some of the pedaling for you.
Pricing starts at $5 for a 24-hour pass, $10 for a 3-day pass, and if you’re ready for a full commitment, you can purchase a 30-day pass for only $15 per month. The electric bikes cost an $1 extra per check-out.
