Clinton Convention and Visitors Bureau Unveils The New Cygnet Bike Sharing Program

SPONSORED

The Clinton Convention and Visitors Bureau is pleased to announce the arrival of the first Cygnet Bike Share Program in Iowa. This bike share system is a perfect fit for the city of Clinton. The city officials were looking for more opportunities for tourists and locals to access the areas along the Mississippi River, in addition to the nearby Downtown and Lyons shopping districts.

Cygnet Bike Share Systems of Ames, Iowa will provide the city with twenty bikes and six docking stations in convenient locations for residents and tourists to rent bikes and ride to points of interest in the city and along the river.  One of those points of interest, which is perfect for a bike ride, is the Clinton Discovery Trail. This trail boasts 4.8 miles of paved path with scenic views along the banks of the Mississippi River. The trail links the city’s popular destination points of Riverview Park to the south with Eagle Point Park to the north.

The system is easy to access, to use, and to enjoy.  “For example, if you were to come in at the Clinton marina and park your boat, you could hop on a bike from several different locations on the Riverfront and ride the entire Discovery Trail that goes from the south end of Clinton to the north end,” said Mary Seeley, Director of the Clinton CVB.  “Cygnet is the perfect solution to meet the community’s needs.”

CVB board members are working out the details regarding how to charge for the use of the bikes.  There may be hourly or even full day rates.  In addition, they are developing an app specifically dedicated to this system.  Plans are to install the Cygnet Bike share system by the end of August.
