June brought in warm weather and two new Heartland B-cycle stations perfect for your recreation needs. The stations, which were bought used from other former BCycle systems, were over a year in the making so we are very excited to have them launched. We are pleased to now have stations at Mahoney State Park and Dodge Riverside Golf Club.
Our station at Mahoney State Park was the first new station to go live. The station is located by the World Herald Cabins and the perfect way to explore the park. The unique placement in a state park is only part of the reason we are so excited about this location. This station is right in the middle between the BikeLNK & Heartland B-cycle systems. While you may not be able to bike share between Omaha and Lincoln just yet, this is a step toward that reality.
The second new station is located at Dodge Riverside Golf Club. Situated just past the Council Bluffs Levee Road Trail & across the street from Harrah's Stir Cove, this is our 7th station in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The station makes it even easier to explore the river as it is located between our Tom Hanafan River's Edge Park and Ameristar stations. Back to the River helped make this station possible and have been integral to making many of our riverside stations possible. If you have every enjoyed biking along the Missouri on a b-cycle, Back to the River helped make that ride possible.
We hope you enjoy these two new stations! We think they will be perfect for summer time adventures and exploring by bike. On the horizon, we have more expansion stations focused on transportation that we have been working on for some time but have seen some significant delays. We are actively working to ensure that our system fulfills the Omaha Metro's transportation needs and will make sure to provide updates on those projects as things become finalized.
