TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tupelo residents and visitors will soon be able to tour the town on two wheels.
A bike-share program called King City Cycles is coming to Tupelo.
Ethan Nolan, the owner, is hoping to give people in Tupelo more options to see the town.
He also hopes the bike-share program will promote healthier lifestyles for people.
Nolan's company will place seven different hubs of bike racks throughout the downtown area.
Users can download an app and rent the bike for however long they want.
When they are done riding, they can park the bike at any of the hubs nearby.
The app will provide users with rules, prices and hub locations.
Nolan is currently working with the Downtown Tupelo Main Street Association to finalize pricing, locations and launch details.
According to Nolan, he plans to host a kick-off event to show the community how the bikes work, as well as provide lessons on using the app.
Nolan said he hopes to have King City Cycles riding around town in the next few weeks.
