Station Expansion in Evanston:  

We’re thrilled to announce the expansion of Red Bike stations in Evanston, making it even more convenient for you to connect with other communities. Check out our two new stations: one at Montgomery & Woodburn (adjacent to the Evanston Recreation Center) and the other on the north end of Owl’s Nest Park. We strategically placed stations at communal neighborhood spots to make getting around easier. By connecting Walnut Hills, Avondale, and the Wasson Way, we’re bridging the gaps created by the I-71 highway corridor. This initiative will significantly impact community connectivity and make it easier for people to explore different parts of the city.  

User Survey: 

A huge thank you to all our amazing riders who took the time to share their thoughts and insights in the recent User Survey! Your input is invaluable, and we’re grateful for the overwhelming response, a total of 756. Your perspectives will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of Red Bike, ensuring that every ride is joyful. Stay tuned as we send out the 2HR Day Pass to those who completed the survey and the prizes for those who won the raffle!

Embrace the Last Rides of the Season: 

As the biking season is slowing down, don’t let the chill in the air stop you. Embrace the crisp breeze, soak in the fall foliage, and enjoy those last few rides before winter. Make the best memories on two wheels; there’s nothing like a fun ride as the leaves crunch beneath your tires. Whether you’re exploring the expanded stations in Evanston, riding the Community Routes, or sharing your free 2HR Day Pass with a friend, grab an e-bike and take advantage of the weather!

New Service Bikes: 

Keep an eye out for our field technicians rolling up to our Red Bike stations in a revamped way! We recently were fortunate to add two cargo e-bikes to our fleet for servicing stations and bikes. Red Bike cannot wait to navigate the streets more confidently when significant events come to the Cincy region; we can efficiently access those stations that are otherwise hard to reach via van. The two Tern GSD S10 bikes enhance our sustainability efforts and bring diversity to our operations, showcasing the incredible versatility of bikes while helping us reduce our climate impact. If you see a field technician riding in upgraded style, please say hi and check out the new ride!
