Bird e-bikes are now available in downtown Cleveland

CLEVELAND (WJW) — Those looking for an alternative way to get around downtown Cleveland now have the option to pay for electric bikes.

Bird, the company behind some of the electric scooters you’ve seen zipping around town, is offering 100 e-bikes starting Tuesday. This is the first fleet of Bird e-bikes introduced in Ohio.

“We are excited to add Bird e-bikes to shared micromobility options in the City of Cleveland,” Mayor Justin M. Bibb said in a statement. “Scooters and bicycles are a practical and durable option for short trips around town.”

The bikes have a small motor that helps riders ride more easily and come with several safety features, the company said. Bikes can travel up to 56 miles before needing to be recharged.

Just like scooters, bikes are activated using the Bird app on your phone. Learn more about cost and availability here.

Riders can score 50% on their first lap with the code CLEBIKE.
