Time's Up! 1000 Dutch-style Bike Program
Times Up! introduces low cost Dutch-style bikes to its Brooklyn space.
We have purchased 450 used bikes that we are recycling and getting on the streets fast, for the cheapest prices possible.
This program has been remarkably successful as we are starting to see more and more Dutch bikes all over NYC. While Time's Up! recycle-a-bike program offers all different styles of bikes, we also focus on providing a very practical Dutch-style non-gender specific recycled bicycle. This single speed bicycle can be ridden in the rain and includes full fenders, full chain guard, kickstand and in most cases rear rack baskets. The upright safe design of a Dutch bike provides more visibility than typical bicycles. The introduction of a low-cost ($160 - $200) Dutch-style bike is a way to change the mindset of New Yorkers.
Many times in America, biking is viewed as more of a sport than a mode of transportation. Through the use of more practical and leisurely designed Dutch-style bikes, the American concept of biking can be transformed. From solely sport biking to a practical method of commuting and enjoying the city's bike paths and greenways. Consequently, bike ridership can spread to various groups of people and increase non-polluting forms of transportation.
We have a limited amount of costume decorated bikes starting at $200
We also have a long-term rental policy in place - buy a bike at full price, if you return it, you get $50 back.
While NYC Bike Share Program stutters to a start, we are getting people on their own perfect commuter bikes at an affordable price!
