“We all need to enjoy some fresh Fall air on a GREENbike, it’s a great experience,” said SelectHealth Public Relations Manager Greg Reid.
Early voting runs from Tuesday, Oct. 20th to Friday, Oct. 30th. GREENbike and SelectHealth will also be providing Free GREENbike access to the public on Election Day Tuesday, Nov. 3rd.

Over the past seven years, residents riding GREENbikes have offset more than 5.3 million pounds of CO2 from entering the air and avoided more than 5.9 million vehicle miles from impacting local roads. GREENbikers burned nearly 78 million calories—roughly 272,000 slices of pizza—in the process. The local non-profit bike share system is dedicated to offering the community an affordable, convenient, and sustainable transportation option.
