The Let’s Bike Program through the CWUW seeks to promote healthy lifestyles and strong relationships for members of King Commons by providing access to sustainable transportation and hosting group rides.
The project is brought to King Commons through the Great Places Neighborhoods Resiliency Grant. This project is designed to encourage residents of King Commons to bike more for their health and other needs. Starting this Fall, residents may check bikes out for exercise, errands, groceries, work, etc. Residents may also sign up to participate in the numerous group rides that will be offered by CWUW.
CWUW will sponsor group rides to many destinations around the city of Indianapolis. The purpose of the group rides is to provide King Commons members with an additional support system with which they can exercise, socialize, shop, and more. People of all skill levels are invited to participate in the group rides. A few CWUW bikes will be available for use, but riders may also use their personal bikes on the rides.

Bike Rental Membership Program
The bike rental aspect of the Let’s Bike program provides access to a bike on a more individual basis for members of King Commons. Individuals may apply to have access to a CWUW bike for up to three months. After applications are reviewed, individuals will be interviewed by a CWUW representative. Upon approval, members will be given an identification card that allows them to check out a bike from Flanner House during hours of operation (9a-5p). This service is offered free of charge so long as the bike is returned before the end of the workday every day. Scroll down to access the registration form for the rental program.
