River Legacy Parks

A new adventure is right around the corner for River Legacy Parks' visitors!

Arlington Parks and Recreation granted Adventure Electric Bicycles, LLC a permit to rent electric bicycles from River Legacy Park.

River Legacy Parks, a 1,300-acre park with more than 10 miles of hard surface trails, is one of Arlington's most visited amenities. It is a popular place for residents to exercise, practice sports, ride bicycles and spend time with family.

Additionally, River Legacy is also a favored spot for Adventure Electric Bicycles' customers, who often rent eBikes to ride in the park. Located at the corner of North Collins Street and Northeast Green Oaks Boulevard, the bike shop is only 1.5 miles from River Legacy's main entrance.

Adventure Electric Bicycles will be offering eBike rentals two-days a week-Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting. Rentals will be available in the park from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Reservations can be made in advance by going to their website. The rental location will be in central River Legacy Parks by the main restrooms and playground.

Electric bicycles are a new trend sweeping the nation after years of popularity in Europe and Asia. The operation of an eBike is similar to that of a regular bicycle; Riders must pedal the bike, but as they do so, an electric motor will contribute up to 90 percent of the effort it takes to move the bike.

Electric bicycles do not require a license to operate and can be ridden anywhere you would ride a regular bicycle, including paved park trails and bike lanes.
