Bike Share Rolls Out in Lansing

Bike Share Rolls Out in Lansing

Cravings Gourmet Popcorn welcomes Capital Community Bike Share to Old Town. In a recent post on Bike-sharing Blog, a site dedicated to reporting on bike-share programs, it says there has been a new bike share program starting almost every two days throughout the world. 

Lansing’s new bike-share program pilot, Capital Community Bike Share, is rolling out on August 4th.  The Capital Community Bike Share in little ole Lansing is drafting right behind Citi Bike, the New York City program launched in May, and Divvy, the Chicago bike-share that came online in July.

Bike-share programs are designed to be a convenient short-term rental system to help keep people moving in short hops throughout the urban centers.  Lansing’s city bikes for this program are described as smart bikes, including solar technology on board for renting and tracking bike locations.  The obvious benefits to the environment are easy to get….less gas, less pollution and if you think about It, the potential economic benefits could be equally beneficial.  Those that are all-in with the bike share program can also look forward to some measurable health benefits as they change their habits for taking meetings or lunch breaks.  The Paris bike share program is celebrating its 6th anniversary and has quantified the health benefits to participants.

The 20 bicycle sharing pilot program only lasts a few months so be sure to jump in early to support this important community project.  Follow Capital Cummunity Bike Share on Facebook for regular updates.

 At Cravings Gourmet Popcorn, we look forward to having our fans that live and work close by or in downtown Lansing  satisfy their cravings for some Craving’s popcorn by hopping on a CCBS bike for a quick pick-up.  We’ve tested it and the bike basket will easily handle 3 or 4 of our tall bags.  Tell us you are on a CCBS bike and we will add an extra punch to your Cravings card!  

Cravings Gourmet Popcorn is located in Old Town Lansing, the hippest area of Lansing, Michigan.  Cravings Gourmet Popcorn can be purchased online at cravingspopcorn.com and shipped to anywhere nationwide and for gifting virtually to Lansing area residents via Conpoto.com.
