Revolution Partners Up for Bike Sharing

Published November 12, 2010

CRYSTAL CITY, VA (BRAIN)—Retailer Revolution Cycles has partnered with Kettler Management—a D.C. based real estate and property management company—allowing both employees and residents of Kettler to enjoy the people-managed bike share program at the Revolution Cycles City Hub, located in Crystal City, Virginia.

With the formation of this unique relationship, residents from more than 65 Kettler communities, including more than 15,000 apartments, will have low cost access to the City Hub’s fleet of Trek Allant bicycles, according to a press release.

The City Hub opened in March of 2010 and has focused on getting more people on bicycles through an innovative, human-operated bike share program. Crystal City residents as well as employees of Crystal City businesses currently benefit from the bike share program, and Revolution Cycles looks forward to more people riding bikes through its new partnership with Kettler.

“We feel that the Revolution Cycles bike share program is the perfect fit for our residents and employees,” said Karen Kossow, vice president of sales and marketing for Kettler. “Many DC apartment renters don’t own their own bikes and this program will allow them to enjoy all of the fabulous trails that the DC area has to offer.”

Known for providing exceptional amenities in pedestrian-friendly communities, Kettler is the first land developer in the DC Metro area to offer bike share access to all of its residents and employees.
