The Cool Factor

  • AN Act of courage in Montgomery Sparked a National Movement... Montgomery is home to Mrs. Rosa McCauley Parks. Rosa Parks became a Civil Rights pioneer in Montgomery by courageously taking a stand and not giving up her seat which sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum and Library is a tribute to that memorable movement.
  • Paddles Up!…the Montgomery Dragon Boat Festival was the first in Alabama and is now the largest Dragon Boat Festival east of the Mississippi and one of the largest attended festivals in the River Region.

Montgomery, AL (Monday, May 18, 2015) – The Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce Convention & Visitor Bureau (MCVB) announced today that a new bike rental program called Capital Cool Cruisers is available to visitors and residents. Sponsored by Regions Bank, four bright green bikes can be rented at the Montgomery Visitor Center located at 300 Water Street in Downtown Montgomery, Alabama.

The bikes are a stylish and efficient way to navigate through downtown to any of the historical sites, restaurants and must-see attractions. All of the essentials are provided in the rental including helmet, basket, visibility lights and a bike lock. Bikes are available Monday-Saturday from 8:30am-5:00pm. Rates range from $14 for two hours, $20 for four hours or $30 for eight hours. The age restriction to rent or ride is sixteen years of age and anyone under the age of eighteen must have a parent or guardian sign off on the rental agreement.

The bike rental program is another exciting and active touring option that joins Blake’s Segway tours, which are available by reservation, and the Meet Montgomery Gem Car tours which are also available by reservation at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturdays only. All three begin and end their tours at the Montgomery Visitor Center.

“As visitor numbers continue to grow in Montgomery, we constantly look for new and exciting ways to show off our uniquely historic and fun city, and National Bike Month was a perfect opportunity to launch this program. We encourage everyone to take a spin around the city,” said MCVB Vice President Dawn Hathcock.
