ANN ARBOR – The City of Ann Arbor will be marking the launch of its first-ever shared e-bike program with a “roll out” event on Monday at 1 p.m.
The event will take place at the Allen Creek Berm Tunnel and city leaders, elected officials and representatives from e-bike company Spin will be in attendance.
In addition to the information session, community members will be able to test ride the e-bikes for free at the event. Those who wish to ride will be asked to sign a waiver and are encouraged to bring a helmet, according to a city release.
On March 20, City Council approved a resolution to move forward with an agreement with Spin to begin operating a fleet of 100 e-bikes in the city.
The bike rental program should be up and running the first week of April, city officials said. Spin also operates 400 e-scooters in the city.
