In celebration of Bike to Work Day, SelectHealth and GREENbike offer the public FREE bike-share rides
SALT LAKE CITY (May 19, 2021) — In celebration of Bike to Work Day GREENbike, Salt Lake City’s non-profit bike share system, and the nonprofit’s title sponsor SelectHealth are offering free GREENbike rides to the public on Friday, May 21.
On Friday, all Salt Lake City residents and visitors will be able to ride GREENbikes for free during the 24-hour period by using the promo code “2021” at any of GREENbike’s 47 stations. After using the code, riders can take as many 30-minute trips as they want during the 24-hour window.
“Biking continues to be an active part of healthy living for many,” said SelectHealth Community and Public Relations Senior Manager Greg Reid. “Working from home or the office, the month of May is a great time to bike to work.”
Over the past eight years, GREENbike riders have offset more than 5.8 million pounds of CO2 from entering the air and prevented more than 6.4 million vehicle miles from impacting local roads. GREENbikers burned nearly 79 million calories—roughly 277,700 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.
“Thanks to SelectHealth’s generosity, anyone heading into the office on Bike to Work Day can do so for free on a GREENbike,” said GREENbike Executive Director & Founder Ben Bolte. “We appreciate SelectHealth’s continued support and we are excited to see who turns out to enjoy the great weather!”
