Sacramento, CA (PressExposure) May 23, 2011 -- Residents at the 15 story apartment building in Sacramento can now rent a bike with a quick visit to the leasing office located in the community lobby and a credit card. With May being National Bike Month and the cost of gas well above $4.00 per gallon, this added amenity is sure to add value for those living in this downtown apartment community.
The bike rental includes everything the casual bike rider will need. The rental includes one beach cruiser with basket, lights, lock and optional helmet. Hourly rates start at $10 per hour and daily rates start at $30 per day. According to PeopleForBikes.com, bicycling can have a direct effect on the environment and individual health. By choosing to take a bike to work or to the corner store, one can take personal responsibility for improving their health, and begin to reduce the use of fossil fuels that produce carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas that is known to contribute to global warming.
With health care and energy policies' being hot topics in American politics, riding a bike makes for good common sense. For Capitol Towers Apartments, it makes for good business sense.
