Humana set up a tent this week on Main Street at the Kentucky Center this week where the public can check out a bike for free during the IdeaFestival. The program, known as Freewheelin’ Way To Go has been operating for Humana employees for over a year. This is an excellent opportunity to go urban exploring on your lunch break or take a ride through the park any time until 5:00 p.m.
Here’s some information about the program:
Freewheelin is a unique bike sharing program that incorporates the ideals of health, environmental conservation and community. The embodiment of sustainability, Freewheelin allows you to track your bicycle usage so you know how your health and the environment benefits from your ride.
The Freewheelin’ program was present for both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions and tallied nearly 42,000 miles resulting in a 14.6 metric ton reduction in our carbon footprint. The IdeaFest Freewheelin’ bikes are equipped with odometers to track your bike stats and helmets are available if you do not bring your own. Already, the IF tour has generated 75 rides for nearly 800 miles and 25,000 calories burned. Thanks go out to Humana for making this program available to everyone in the River City.
