Drift Cycle is a community bike share project in collaboration with LCNI. Drift is an integral part of the transportation network, offering an easy-to-use, affordable bike rental program for residents, commuters, and visitors that contributes to the health and vibrancy of the community.
This public bike sharing service currently provides 75 bikes located around the city at 15 designated docking locations sponsored by local businesses and institutions. Drift is a new transportation option with affordable memberships, free rides for new members, and the ability to rent up to 4 bikes at a time from one account, ideal for families and small groups.
Our partners goals are to encourage cycling through bike share, host events, provide education, and improve access and safety. Drift welcomes additional partners and community members interested in joining our efforts to provide the benefits of bike share.
The project is currently made possible thanks to all the contributions from the City of La Crosse, La Crosse County, Beer By Bike Brigade, La Crosse Neighborhoods Inc., Cleary Family, LHI (part of OptumServe), City of La Crosse Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department, MAYO, UWL, Western Technical College, La Crosse MTU, Gundersen Health, Mayo, Chad Erickson Memorial, Myrick Park, Aging & Disability Resource Center, Explore La Crosse, La Crosse Area Chamber of Commerce, La Crosse Area Development Corporation, and Downtown Mainstreet.
Special thanks to all the contributers to the La Crosse Bike Share Feasibility Study Environmental Assessment of 2015 for without which the launch of Drift Cycle would not have been possible.
