Charlevoix gets FIT with Bike Share Program

It’s called Fun In Transit, FIT for short, and it’s one town’s new way to get people moving around and reducing their carbon footprint.

The non profit group called WATCH, short for Water and Air Team Charlevoix, has launched a new bike share program in Charlevoix.

The program allows people to use twelve bikes stationed at three different places around town for free.

All you need is a valid credit card and license to make sure it comes back the way it left.

Bikes can be found at Revolution Bike, the marina and the Charlevoix airport.

Chet Morris, owner of Revolution Bike, said, “Enabling the local folks whether you’re here for the summer as a tourist or as a full time resident you can use the bikes free of charge. It just kind of helps keep thee cars off the streets, gets people exercising it’s a good way to see town, you know, it’s free too. “

Bikes are available 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, six days a week.

They come with baskets, a lock, and people that use them are required to use a helmet while riding.
