Creating Memories On Two Wheels

 

 

As President John F. Kennedy once said, “Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride!”

Will you have visitors in town for the upcoming holiday season? As we all know, Atlanta is a beautiful city filled with lots of fun events and endless adventure. Grabbing a Relay Bike is a fun activity that you can do with your family during the holiday season to enjoy everything our city has to offer.
Riding a bicycle is a healthy, affordable, and sustainable way to get around.  A casual bike ride will allow you to spend quality time with your friends and family, all while offering a memorable experience.

After all the food and football games, let’s get the blood moving! We’ve put together a few two-wheeled activities we think are perfect for the holidays.

With Relay Bike Share you have options and flexibility. You can lock your Relay Bike Share to any public bike rack or pole in our system area. Discover how to lock up correctly in this blog post.>>> Relay Bike Share Locking Etiquette. http://relaybikeshare.com/relay-bike-share-locking-etiquette/

One-way trips are OK with us! If you don’t want to bike home, you can utilize MARTA or a ride-sharing service….just please make sure your bike is locked up and not blocking ADA access.

Renting Multiple Relay Bikes Tips

Did you know you can use one SoBi account to rent up to 4 Relay Bikes at the same time? If you decide to rent multiple bikes, the first bike will utilize your plan minutes and the additional bikes 2, 3, and 4 will be billed at our standard rate of $0.15 per minute.

  • You can rent the additional bikes through the keypad on the back of the Relay bike.  Just use your account number and PIN.
  • The Relay account holder is responsible for any bikes rented under their account number.
  • Any additional riders should be 16 years of age or older.  Riders under 18 should be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.  

Now that you are ready to roll out with your holiday visitors, visit this post for upcoming bike-friendly events around the town!
