As Green Bay introduces its bike rental program, Egg Harbor’s “Eggy” bike share program is rolling along just fine. The “Eggy” bike program, which can best be called “grab and go” biking , is in its second year of operation. Anyone from full-time residents to visitors can take one of the bright green bikes from four different locations and start peddling. Sponsorship by local businesses allowed the service to go from eight bikes when it started last year to 17 now. Village Administrator Ryan Heise says one thing the free “Eggy” bike program shares with Green Bay’s rental bikes is regular maintenance.
Heise says the “Eggy” bike program is also run on the honor system and it’s paid off. Last year all of the bikes in the program were still accounted for at the end of the tourism season.
