YELLOWKNIFE - Visitors to Yellowknife can now borrow bikes for free at the downtown Visitor Centre and explore the city.
The new service — sponsored by Outcrop, a local communications firm — is scheduled to run at least until Labour Day.
The city is a bike-friendly place, said Ryan Silke, a tourism counsellor at the centre.
"The Visitor Centre is right on the shore of Frame Lake and there are a number of different trail networks in the area, so visitors can come and pick up a bike and off they go."
He also recommended Old Town as a cycling destination.
"There are some nice one-way streets. It's pretty chillax there with not too much traffic, so that's a good place to go."
Helmets and locks are also provided.
