BikeSmart is back—ride FREE today!

Ride for free with Stark Library! We launched BikeSmart, Stark County's bike sharing network, in 2015 as a pilot program in partnership with Stark Parks and Canton Parks and Recreation using bike services provided by Zagster. The response was overwhelming, so we're back for a fourth season. Stop into your local library branch before your first ride to link your Zagster account with your library card and begin riding for free!

What is BikeSmart? 

You may have seen fee-based bike shares in New York, Chicago, Columbus or Cleveland, but BikeSmart has a unique twist. BikeSmart is FREE to all Stark Library card holders. If you want to check out a bike for a quick ride on the trail, a trip to the farmer's market, or just to zip around town, stop into your local library branch before your first ride to set up your account. Visitors to Stark County and other non-card holders will still be able to rent a bike with a credit card for the usual hourly fee.

Once you have your account, look for the BikeSmart sign at these hubs throughout Stark County:
