DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton’s bike share program is off to a promising start.

Organizers of Link say more than 1,300 bike trips were ridden during the first week that the bikes were available.

There were more than 350 unique users testing out the bikes.

“Link bikes are awesome!” said Betsy Wilson, South Park resident. “My bike is old and is a hassle to drag out of the basement. With my membership, I just pick a bike, head to my destination downtown and check it back in.”

Friday, May 15 is Bike to Work Day in Dayton. The first 100 riders to arrive at RiverScape MetroPark in downtown Dayton from 7:00 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. will receive a 24-hour membership for free.

Link has 24 stations and a fleet of more than 200 bikes available to rent. 24-hour memberships cost only $5.00.
