Customer Testimonials

“I feel like I’m part of a family when I take Red Bike – I wave to other Red Bikers and look for them when I’m driving. Red Bike puts the fun back into riding bikes!”
“My friends and I used Red Bike passes to take the time to be tourists in our own city…It’s amazing how much more of the city you can take in when you’re on a bike rather than in a car.”
“Red Bike has made Cincy more enjoyable and tourist-friendly.”
“I think this was a wonderful addition to the city. It’s a convenient and fun way to get around. Being a transplant, it’s also a great way to show off the city when friends and family come in to visit. And, it’s just fun to ride around the city on bikes. I love it…as does everyone I’ve ridden bikes with.”
“It helped me to access the city in ways I hadn’t thought of before.”
