Funkwerks Joins the FC Bike Library Family

Somewhere, at the farthest point on the largest brewing street in the country (according to DRAFT Magazine http://draftmag.com/beereditor/the-biggest-brewing-street-in-the-country/), in a exceptionally bike friendly, beer drinking community, there was a microbrewery that thought it might be a good idea to become a Bike Library hub.  So here we go!

Funkwerks officially joins the Bike Library Family

The Fort Collins Bike Library is a project of Bike Fort Collins (a nonprofit organization). The Bike Library’s mission is to “provide an affordable and dependable resource for bicycle sharing and advocacy promoting a positive cycling culture in Fort Collins.” Learn more about the Bike Library at http://www.fcbikelibrary.org/.

With the rise in tourism to Fort Collins, bikes are a great way to safely visit breweries. And most visitors do not travel with their own bicycle, making the Fort Collins Bike Library a continent way to fully experience a key aspect of the Fort Collins culture.

Beer and Bikes! It’s a match made in heaven.
The Funkwerks Fleet: 6 Crusiers

As a Bike Library hub, you can rent a bike for $10 a day (technically free, but only if you return the bike by 1pm the same day it is checked out). Complete the sign up form and digital liability waiver located online; you will need a credit card and your photo ID number. You can do this ahead of time to make the process a tad speedier, or use our computer in the taproom, at your convenience. Pick up your bike from Funkwerks and ride! You may also return your bike at any of the six Bike Library locations!
