Shadelands business center in Walnut Creek is launching an easy-to-use, high-tech bikeshare program with LimeBike, a San Mateo-based firm that will 500 of their bright green smart-bikes to the 267-acre Shadelands business center.

The bikes, enabled with GPS, 3G wireless technology, and self-activating locks, will be part of pioneering program to put bikeshare riders on the public streets and in the public places of Walnut Creek.

As might be expected, a LimeBike app makes it simple to find, unlock, and pick up a nearby bike for use while in the center. When finished, riders will be guided to areas where they can drop off their bike in an approved collection point.

The bikes will be available at the center after a kickoff event announcing their arrival scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 23 at noon.

  1. Here we go. What’s America coming to? Pretty soon it’s going to be like the Netherlands around here and Americans’ll be all fit and shit.

  2. @Tim Davis – Right, huh? Things like this are going to negatively impact the pharmaceutical industry, and we can’t have that!

  3. Anything to cut down on the “2/3 problem” in America. Happily enjoying the other 1/3… have another brownie.

  4. @News24-680 I look forward to being free of that fear of landing on that #/!?%!! bar if you know what I mean.
