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.
