Bike Miami Valley’s Link: Dayton Bike Share program is kicking off Bike Month with a great new addition to its bike fleet thanks to the law firm of Thompson Hine. Thompson Hine is sponsoring eight bikes in the system, and one of those bikes is wrapped with a custom design by Thompson Hine’s graphics team.
Thompson Hine works in partnership with various non-profit organizations to help them achieve their goals and define their missions. A good example is the firm’s partnership with Bike Miami Valley, whose mission is to advocate, promote, and create opportunities for cycling in our region. Dayton Partner, Jonathan Hawkins, has been a member of the Bike Miami Valley board since 2011 and was a critical player in bringing the Bike Share program to life for the Dayton community.
Christine M. Haaker, partner-in-charge of the Dayton office, commented, “We are proud of Jonathan’s commitment and pleased to join other community partners to help Bike Miami Valley achieve its goal of providing bike-sharing services to those who live in and visit the City alike. Our contribution to the Link program now includes eight Thompson Hine branded bikes and reflects our commitment to Bike Miami Valley’s mission and the continuing expansion of great City offerings. We hope to see our bikes en route, providing riders enjoyment and easy access to transportation.”
In 2021, the Link: Dayton Bike Share Program expanded, adding ten new bike parking and pick-up locations, known as “hubs.” Users are invited to take advantage of the new locations and check-out the Thompson Hine bikes, using the Link Dayton app. Users can also participate in Link Bingo this month to win prizes while they ride. Participants do not need to register to participate in the bingo challenge, and bingo cards are available for download at Linkdayton.org. “Taking a trip on the specially wrapped Thompson Hine bike will be a bingo square to fill,” says Laura Estandia, Executive Director of Bike Miami Valley. “We hope our users enjoy this cool ride!”
