Sharing is a good thing | Bike Share in Rock Falls
Enjoy a new way to discover Rock Falls or the Hennepin Canal
Rock Falls is a participant in the Movatic Bike Share program.
The bikes are located at the RB&W Riverfront Park in Rock Falls, 201 E 2nd St., right next to the Holiday Inn Express & Suites.
There’s an app for this
The bikes are controlled by Bluetooth and an application for your smartphone. The application works with iPhone and Android phones. The rental instructions are posted on the racks and steps to follow are right on the bikes themselves.
Once you download the Movatic Share app, you create an account and input your method of payment. After that, you can simply scan the QR code on the back of the bike and you’re all set to enjoy a ride around town or down the Hennepin Canal!
The current rate is $5 per hour and the bikes are equipped with GPS tracking technology. Once you’re done enjoying your ride, all you have to do is line the lock back up with a slot in the rack for the lock to close around and hit, “end ride” on the app. Users are urged to ensure this is done properly to avoid unnecessary charges and to be sure the bike can be available for the next user. Currently, the bikes are set to fit teenagers and adults.
By beautifying our riverfront and giving locals and tourists new ways to enjoy the city, Rock Falls is a great weekend or day trip in northwest Illinois.
