Capitol City Cycleshare

On a Zagster bike, along the riverfront in Bend. Oh the places you can go! (and so can your dog!!)

Update-

Osborne Adventures has made a successful and valiant effort to raise enough funds for a soft-launch of the cycleshare program. We have aligned with a turn-key vendor who has many successful programs nation-wide. Since our first meeting in September of 2016 with local city planners discussing our intentions, those meetings have increased as we conquer one of the last hurdles in our way of incorporating a successful cycleshare program in Salem.

With that being said, we would not be where we are without the financial support and advocacy from our sponsors. We are honored to have aligned with the following organizations who are also passionate about the livability and well-being of our community:

Our Sponsors:

Salem Summit Co.

US Bank

Salem Health

Morrow Equipment Co.

Thrivent

Cherriots: Salem Area Mass Transit 

Venti’s

Salem Leadership Foundation

Willamette Community Bank

Ritter’s

In House Graphics

TJ Huggins Insurance

Bliss Sequoia Insurance

Chipotle

 


Why a Bikeshare?

On one of our travels to Minneapolis, Minnesota several years ago, bike-share programs were discovered. Our experience in MN led to travel goals of riding bike-shares around the world.

The major cities of Paris, London, Amsterdam, New York, Chicago, and Miami are some of the bike-sharing opportunities we have enjoyed.

From that first experience in MN, the founding members of Osborne Adventures made a wish that such a program would come to the city of Salem. That wish is becoming a reality. Salem’s bike-share program will be launching this summer! Planning is underway with the city and bike program, and we are anticipating an August launch! Thanks for the visit and stay tuned for updates!
