Mobank Sponsors New Kansas City BCycle 2.0 Fleet

BikeWalkKC is pleased to announce that Mobank will serve as the sponsor of our Kansas City BCycle 2.0 bike fleet. These lighter, new bikes in high-visibility “Mobank orange” feature front and rear integrated lights, an all-weather saddle, three-speed shifting, comfort and control for riders of all sizes, hardcase all-weather tires, internal cable routing and drivetrain. A total of 80 of the 2.0 bikes will hit the streets, starting this summer, with Mobank’s generous support.

The one-year sponsorship was announced at Mobank’s recent company meeting, held at Union Station in Kansas City, MO. Mobank Chairman Grant Burcham stated, “We are thrilled to have 80 orange Mobank Bikes around town.  BikeWalkKC is a signature organization for quality of life in Kansas City, and we are excited about our partnership.”

Kansas City BCycle is a 24/7 bike sharing system, with 30 stations currently serving Kansas City, Missouri, from the River Market to Waldo. An additional 10-15 stations will open in 2017, including the first three located in North Kansas City to open this June, which will feature up to 20 of the new 2.0 Mobank Bikes. Rates start at $3 per half hour, and bikes may be checked out from and returned to any of the stations around the metro area. For more information, visit https://kc.bcycle.com/.
