Fifty brand new white and shiny bikes can now be rented across Roanoke at 10 different stations. It's as easy as downloading the app and then unlocking the bike.

Little to no tax dollars were spent because it's privately funded, but this can help drive business, too.

"As we learned with the Deschutes 2 Roanoke initiative, businesses that want to expand and want to look and come here to Roanoke are definitely looking for locations that offer a healthy environment and superior outdoor amenities which we have and again they continue to grow," Roanoke City councilman David Trinkle said.

There are two ways to pay , through an annual membership or an hourly rate.
