One local bicycle shop can help you save money on gas and it won't cost you a dime.
George Ney of Pottstown, Montgomery County, is one of many who is frustrated with prices at the pump being $4 a gallon.
"The government has to do something about this gas situation. People can't afford it," said Ney.
That's why Ney and many others are turning to Tri-County Bicycle for the shop's free bike borrowing program. It's called Bike Pottstown.
John DiRenzo, the shop's owner, told 69 News the program is busier and more popular than ever.
"Its been an incredible uptick in the community since the rise of gas prices," said DiRenzo.
"It saves on gas," said Ney. "I can get around and pay all my bills, run errands here and there, and go to stores."
Tri-County Bicycle has 30 yellow beach cruisers available for people to borrow. The bikes were provided through grant money from the Pottstown Wellness Foundation.
"At some point," said Kurt Zwikl, executive director of Schuylkill River Heritage Area, "we may be looking at bringing more bicycles to Pottstown because they are very popular."
In order to borrow a bike, DiRenzo said one has to be at least 16-years-old and have a state ID or drivers license. Tri-County Bicycles also provides helmets.
DiRenzo said bikes can be borrowed for an entire day, however, the must be returned by the time the shop closes.
"You can commute in downtown Pottstown on a bike, anywhere in the country actually, on a bike that has cycling lanes," said DiRenzo.
