CHOCCOLOCCO PARK ADDS BIKE SHARING SYSTEM!

Beginning 2019, you will be able to use an app on your smartphone to rent a bike and enjoy a ride around the lake at Choccolocco Park. The company is VeoRide, and rental rates start at 50 cents for 15 minutes, and you can pay-as-you-go or get a membership plan.

This new amenity grew out of a desire for a family-friendly activity the city could offer at Choccolocco Park. The Oxford City Council and Mayor Alton Craft saw an opportunity to bring in a bike share program that would benefit locals and out-of-town visitors at the park. “We know families travel together to come to sporting events at Choccolocco Park, and we wanted them to be able to ride around the lake in-between games,” Mayor Craft explained. “We have beautiful weather, a great bike trail, and now they can enjoy another fun activity with the bikes provided by VeoRide.”
