The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) launched a bike loan program early this spring as a way to increase opportunities for physical activity for all SEARHC employees in Sitka. SEARHC’s CEO, Chuck Clement, is dedicated to supporting the health of his employees and wanted to make bicycles available to them, SEARHC Health Educator Holly Marban wrote in an email. Clement is a former competitive cyclist.
In response, the consortium purchased three bikes that are available for SEARHC employees to borrow for up to a few days at a time. They are each branded with reflective SEARHC logo decals and each have a front basket, lights, a cable lock, and a helmet. Employees can check out a bike at the SEARHC Fitness Center using the sign-out sheet inside the main entrance.
If SEARHC employees have questions about the bike loan program, they can call Emma Klein at 966-8785. SEARHC is the only Bicycle Friendly Business designee in Sitka, having a Bronze level award from the League of American Bicyclists.
