In the News: Cheshire resident working to create bike-sharing program near trail

CHESHIRE — A town resident is working to provide free bicycle rentals near the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail, emulating bike-sharing programs in Simsbury and other towns.

Jim Jinks has been collecting bikes to fix up for the program, which he hopes to start in May.

“It’s a way to build a culture of biking in Cheshire,” he said.

The first rentals will be offered on weekends, and possibly Monday and Friday, from the Ball & Socket Factory property near the trail. Jinks said renters will put down a $10 deposit and get a bike and helmet for 24 hours.
