NO BIKE? NO WORRIES.
Cycle and discover all Mason City has to offer on two wheels
Explore meandering recreational trails, mountain bike along the limestone bluffs or pedal along on a leisurely sightseeing ride along Mason City’s Bikeways.
Mason City offers numerous multi-use pathways, bike lanes, off-road paths and paved shoulders…. all conveniently accessible and connected.
No bike? No worries. The Mason City Bike Share Program provides 12 bikes at 3 locations throughout the community. Bikes are available in racks located at City Hall, Margaret MacNider Campground, and Prairie Playground.
City Hall – located at 10 First Street NW
Margaret MacNider Campground – located at 901 N. Birch Drive
Prairie Playground, East Park – located in the 800 block of East State Street
To get started, all you need is a cell phone and a credit card. Instructions on the bikes and racks explain how to download the KoloniShare app, where you will enter your information and book the bike that you wish to rent. The bike is unlocked through the app. The cost is $1 per hour to rent a bike.
During your rental period, you will lock and unlock the bike through the app with your phone. Each bike is equipped with a lock and an alarm that can be set if you wish to stop at any point along your ride. To end the rental, simply return the bike to the rack, lock it up, and end your ride through the app.
Although not required, bike helmets are strongly recommended.
Need a quick bike repair?
A bike repair station is available for FREE public use in Prairie Playground – located just a hop, skip and jump west of the bike share rack.
