Essay
Bike sharing is fun, more fun than I was expecting and I was expecting fun – a slow adventure type of fun. These bikes are not for racing, but they do make getting through the heat a veritable breeze.

Officials say that ‘bike sharing makes it economical and convenient to use bikes for trips that are too far to walk but too short to drive.’ The marketing campaign says ‘put the fun between your legs.’ Vegas, you’re always keeping yourself top of mind.

RTC Bike Share is available 24/7. As an downtown outsider living in Henderson, I opt for the late weekend mornings. Less traffic and hassles and a great time to view the murals and installations.

Currently there are 180 bikes and 21 stations conveniently located throughout downtown Las Vegas. Many of the stations are along or near downtown’s new green bicycle lanes.

We are reflecting more on bicycle tourism and the role bikes play. When there are more options for local and visitors to hop on a bike, city tourism changes. When locals have access via bike lanes and bike share programs, one’s perception of the city changes, expands.
