Spinlister becomes the exclusive bike rental and bike share partner of Gran Fondo New York
Spinlister, the peer-to-peer global bike share, announced today that they have become the exclusive bike rental and bike share partner of Gran Fondo New York. Spinlister will be Gran Fondo New York’s exclusive bike rental platform for Campagnolo Gran Fondo New York, GFNY Cozumel, and GFNY Mont Ventoux for the next two years.
Instead of shipping their bikes for race day, GFNY is encouraging athletes arriving from around the world to rent a bike from a local cyclist on Spinlister. To accommodate the high volume of rental requests, a free delivery service will be offered on May 17th, 2015 for Campagnolo Gran Fondo New York. Spinlister staff will be facilitating the pick-up of bikes from Listers all over Greater New York area and making them available in one centralized location for athletes to pick up for the race.
“We’re extremely excited to partner with Spinlister the next two years. The existing underutilized inventory around cities creates a unique and exciting value proposition for racers and bike enthusiasts everywhere. Athletes travel from all corners of the globe to participate in our races and often struggle with shipping their bikes or finding a bike to rent. With Spinlister they can rent the same, similar, or better bike from a fellow cyclist eliminating that hassle,” said Uli Fluhme CEO of Grand Fondo New York.
“As we grow internationally, the need for Spinlister is becoming ever more present,” says Spinlister CEO Marcelo Loureiro. “Cyclists are everyday people who travel frequently. Why should your lifestyle or hobby of cycling be limited to just when you are home? We are so excited to be partnering with Gran Fondo New York as they are one of the most prestigious distance cycling series in the world.”
Spinlister is encouraging individuals and bike shops to list their bikes at www.spinlister.com/list to help cyclists looking to rent high end bikes for Gran Fondo New York. All bikes are insured up to $10,000 against theft or damage. If you would like to rent a bike visit www.spinlister.com.
