The Orange Bike Project rents bikes to those who need them. The expansion of this project involves the acquisition of over 90 bikes as well as more equipment for the community bike shop. Shop location and hours can be found on the main Orange Bike Project website. Community members and students can use this bike shop to work on their bikes and learn bike maintenance basics from the OBP staff.
Bike rental programs include short-term rentals, semester-long rentals, and weekend rentals, all at very reasonable and competitive prices. The commuter-style bikes are maintained by the OBP staff who also provide instruction on how to care for your rental bike.
