Welcome to BIKE SHARE NEW LONDON!

WHAT IS BIKE SHARE NEW LONDON?

We want to put all New London, Connecticut residents and visitors on wheels.





BIKE NEW LONDON LINKS

Bike Share New London is an exciting new program that will allow all city residents
and visitors to ride where they want, when they want, at virtually no cost.

BIKE SHARE is completely run by Bike New London volunteers and contributions.
The program is available at New London's Water Street Parking Garage, 161 Water St, New London, CT.

Bicycles are furnished by donation or purchased with donations.
Volunteers, working with bicycle shops and experts, outfit the bikes with new parts as
needed, replace safety items such as brakes, tires, and cables, and also repaint the bikes our signature colors.

To use a BIKE SHARE NEW LONDON bicycle, no reservation is required.
Come to the Water Street Garage, fill out a waiver (located here) form,
leave a $10 deposit, and select a bicycle that fits you.

Click here for our BIKE SHARE brochure.



When you return the bicycle, your deposit is returned.
All of our bicycles, come equipped with a carrying basket.
A helmet and a lock are also provided for your safety and security.

This program is modeled after similar free or low-cost bike-sharing programs
presently in operation in cities across the country. There is a big difference, however!
Bike New London rents our bikes without a complicated credit card system or
electronic bike racks. You do not need to subscribe or have a credit card.
It's a very simple system provided as a public convenience.

Please take care of the bicycle you borrow as if it were your own. This keeps our costs down.

If you should have a problem with a BIKE SHARE bicycle, return it, notify the garage attendant and
use a different one. Let the attendant know what the problem is so we can
repair the bicycle quickly.

BIKE SHARE NEW LONDON is not a commercial enterprise. We do not
make money from the use or repair of bicycles. We are not in the business
of selling bicycles, either new or used. We always welcome your support:
