ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boasting spacious accommodations and an impressive list of services, the Radisson Rochester Hotel Riverside is one of the top-rated hotels in Rochester, NY. In addition to their ideal location, exploring the beautiful city of Rochester just got easier for Radisson Rochester Hotel Riverside’s guests with the installment of the first Spinway Bike Station just outside of their recently renovated lobby, located on East Main Street.
Spinway is a high-tech Australian based company changing the way bicycles are rented. Spinway provides lightweight, reliable bikes for hire 24/7, 365 days a year. Guests of the Radisson Rochester Hotel Riverside can simply swipe their credit card at Rochester’s convenient solar-powered station, select their preferred rental period and take off to cycle around the sights of the city day and night. Ride to dinner or a show and meander back beneath the stars, or greet the day with a refreshing bike ride before breakfast.
A helmet, lock, map and lights are all included in the price of the bike rental. Rent and return the bicycle in one hour for $11.00, four hours for $22.00 or eight hours for $33.00.
Spinway Bike Stations feature Avanti bikes, with comfortable adjustable seats, puncture‐resistant tries and a low step frame suitable for a wide range of riders to ensure guests have a hassle‐free spin around town.
A central computer server tracks each Spinway bicycle through RFID technology. This technology captures data such as distance, duration, calories burned, and carbon offsets that are calculated during every ride.
“It’s an obvious partnership for us, and we are delighted to be the first hotel in Rochester to launch this brand new bicycle experience to our guests,” said Nicholas Andersen, Radisson Rochester Hotel Riverside General Manager.
“This is a great way for our hotel guests and tourists to easily and safely enjoy our city, and it’s environmentally friendly as well,” Nicholas said.
Spinway Rochester does operate slightly different to established, large scale bike-hire networks, in just one way. As a very young operation, they don’t yet have a sufficient number of locations to operate as a multi-station network. Nonetheless, together, the Radisson Rochester Hotel Riverside and Spinway hope to ignite excitement for bike hire in Rochester and expand the Spinway program. The team at the Radisson Hotel Rochester Riverside is thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce a bike rental program to their city.
"In due time, we hope to entice the installation of more stations in and around Rochester, giving both locals and tourists access to a low‐cost, environmentally friendly and fun way to both get around town and explore the city,” Nicholas said.
The Radisson Hotel Rochester Riverside is owned and managed by an operating affiliate of GF Management, one of the country’s top hospitality ownership and management companies.
