Bike rental kiosks installed in Owensboro

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - Bike rental kiosks are being installed in downtown Owensboro and Horse Fork Creek Park.

Boro Bikes Owner Adam McIntire has spent the weekend getting the solar powered docking stations set up.

People will be able to rent bikes for $5 an hour and ride them anywhere in Owensboro.

McIntire says he got the idea on a trip to Chicago where he saw a similar kiosk.

"I've been working all weekend...took a few days off of work to get these things installed," he told us.  "Finally have the kiosk up trying to get the bikes plugged in, ready to go, ready to rent."

McIntire says both kiosks are now open.
