Linville Team Partners, a commercial real estate company located on Trade Street in Winston-Salem has launched a free bike-share program for its employees, clients, colleagues and friends.
Taking advantage of a series of bike racks installed by the city in the central business district, the company assembled several cruiser-style bikes branded with the Linville Team Partners logo.
"If you're going from Point A to Point B and want to go for a short distance without getting in a car, it's a fun way to get around," said Kelly Whitener with the real estate company.
The program has been in place for about a month, and Whitener said the company just recently blasted information about it out through e-mail and social media. The program operates through a degree of trust.
"We just decided to take that risk," Whitener said. "We understand that people may take advantage of it."
She added that anyone who is interested in using the bikes is welcome to call the office at 336.724.1715 to request the access code.
