Drift Cycle public bike share is located in the city of La Crosse, Wisconsin. Koloni, an Iowa based sharing company, and La Crosse Neighborhoods, Inc. created a partnership to launch the program that started April 2021.
Initially, 40 bikes are located around the city at 8 designated docking locations sponsored by local businesses and institutions.
The bike share will provide a new transportation option for residents and tourists with affordable memberships. New users get a free 60min ride, compliments of the sponsors, by entering referral code 57WLZ7 upon their first sign-up. Users will be able to rent up to 5 bikes at a time from one account, ideal for families and small groups.
Drift Cycle is a La Crosse community biking share project and an integral part of the transportation network, offering an easy-to-use, affordable bike rental program for residents, commuters, and visitors that contributes to the health and vibrancy of the community.
GET OUTSIDE – HOP AROUND DOWNTOWN – ENJOY THE FUN!
Together the partners plan to encourage cycling through bike share, by hosting events, providing education, and improving access and safety. Drift welcomes additional partners and community members interested in joining our efforts to provide the benefits of bike share.
BE AWARE – ACT SAFELY – SPREAD THE WORD!
The project is currently made possible thanks to all the contributions from the City of La Crosse, La Crosse County, Beer By Bike Brigade, La Crosse Neighborhoods Inc., Cleary Family, LHI (part of OptumServe), City of La Crosse Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department, Western Technical College, La Crosse MTU, Explore La Crosse, La Crosse Area Chamber of Commerce, La Crosse Area Development Corporation, and Downtown Mainstreet.
