The Sun Club’s $9,000 donation helped bring another solar-powered bike-share station to downtown Austin, right outside Green Mountain Energy’s headquarters! This new station is one of several the Austin B-cycle non-profit has installed to enable greener, pollution-free commuting across the city. Austin B-cycle is Austin’s bike-share program that currently has over 40 B-cycle stations and nearly 400 B-cycle bikes located around downtown Austin. Austin B-cycle is working to provide a fun and fast way for locals and visitors to move about the downtown core.
