SelectHealth Sponsors Free SLC GREENbike Rides Saturday 11/30/2019

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (Nov. 26, 2019) — On Saturday, Nov. 30 SelectHealth will sponsor all rides using GREENbike, Salt Lake City’s non-profit bike share system, for the final FREE Ride Day of 2019.

On Saturday, all Salt Lake City residents and visitors will be able to ride GREENbikes for free by using the promo code “2019” at any GREENbike kiosk. Riders can take as many 30-minute trips as they want during the 24-hour period.

“SelectHealth is invested in our community. Supporting air quality, recreating, and getting around town are some of the benefits of riding GREENbikes. Enjoy a free ride day powered by SelectHealth,” said SelectHealth Public Relations Manager Greg Reid. “GREENbike supports our mission of helping people live the healthiest lives possible.”

Over the past six years, the GREENbike program has offset more than 4.7 million pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the air and avoided more than 5.2 million vehicle miles from impacting local roads. GREENbikers burned nearly 72 million calories—roughly 252,000 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.

“We’re happy to be able to offer folks the opportunity to try out our system, especially the 50 new e-bikes we added in August,” said GREENbike Executive Director and Founder Ben Bolte. “We’re grateful for the generosity of SelectHealth.  We wouldn’t be able to offer these rides without SelectHealth’s support.”
