On December 19, a representative of Linus Bike, a bicycle company that produces city bikes, offers comments and additional advice in response to an article published by The Independent Voter Network (IVN) regarding the San Diego bike-sharing program Bikes Count.

According to the IVN article, “There are currently twenty-eight bike-counting devices throughout fourteen of the cities in the county. More counters will ultimately be installed as the program expands, according to a post by the San Diego County News Center.”

The article reports that the Bikes Count program will use tallying devices which will be scattered along streets and bike paths in order to “calculate the number of cyclists and pedestrians traversing the area.” According to the article, the program has been funded by Healthy Works, a grant provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The article cites a quote Dr. Dean Sidelinger gave to the San Diego County News Center. Sidelinger, Child Health Medical Officer for the County of San Diego, stated, “Bicycling and walking are easy ways to increase daily physical activity to stay healthy and reduce the chances of getting a chronic disease. Collecting this information helps promote bicycle riding, and increases choices for everyone to include biking and walking in their routines.”

China Reevers, a representative of the environmentally friendly city bike producer Linus Bike, supports the city’s new bike sharing program. “San Diego is truly inspiring when it comes to bike advocacy. With wonderful bike-sharing programs, the city really caters to cyclists and utilizes the programs to encourage people to start cycling. We wish Bikes Count the best of luck!”

Linus Bike is a California-based bicycle manufacturer that specializes in creating vintage style city bikes and commuter bikes. Not simply a bicycle company, Linus Bike sells a complete line of accessories for the environmentally conscious and for those who have a fondness for European style bicycles and the great tradition of European cycling.
