The City of Golden wants you to explore the city and its trails by bike -- and they'll even loan you a bike for free.
Golden's Bike Library at the Golden Visitors Center at 1010 Washington Avenue opens June 22.
Residents, visitors, employees and students can borrow a bike, for up to two hours, for free. If you want to borrow a bike for a day, there's a $10 fee.
The Golden Bike Library has bicycles available in different sizes including children’s bikes and light-weight geared bikes in multiple sizes to cruise around town or tackle Golden’s hills, officials said.
Bikes will be available Thursday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There's a key drop box so bikes may be returned after hours.
Bikes come with a lock and a helmet. And there's a bonus! Riders get a reusable water bottle and a Golden Ticket good for discounts at various Golden businesses and restaurants.
Learn more on the Golden Bike Library's website . Note, the bikes are at the city's visitors center, not the city library.
There's even a bike path next to the visitor center. It follows a creek and is very pleasant.
