Blue Bike Program

What it is:
The Blue Bike program is a free bike-share program in River Falls that started in 2016. There are four designated bike racks throughout the City located at Hoffman Park, Veterans Park, the UW-River Falls campus and in front of Our Neighbors Place.  Each rack will have four to six blue bikes of various sizes and styles along with a permanently affixed fix-it station.

What it isn’t:
It’s not like the bikes you’ve seen in big cities where they all look identical and you have to swipe a card. Our eclectic collection of blue bikes are free to use.  

How does it work: 
We try to keep the rules to a minimum but here they are:

  • Our Bikes Are Available for Recreational Use
  • Please Use Respectfully
  • Follow the Rules of the Road
  • Please Turn the Seat Backward if Repair is Needed

Where are the racks?
The bike racks are located in two of the City's parks (Hoffman and Veterans Park), on the UW-River Falls campus, and at Our Neighbors' Place. Please return your bike to any of the four racks. Click here for a map.
