CHARLES CITY- Cruisers Bike Rentals is adding a second pickup spot for contactless bike rentals at Indian Fields Tavern.

The new addition at Indian Fields Tavern, which is located at 9220 John Tyler Memorial Highway, will enable riders to enjoy cycling day trips along the Virginia Capital Trail near the establishment.

“Business has really picked up since the weather broke,” said Eli Dancy, who manages the bike rental company.

The lightweight, easy-to-ride bikes rent for $10 an hour, $35 for four hours, or $50 for a full day. Bikes must be returned by 9pm. The original rental location behind the Charles City County Visitor Center at 10780 Courthouse Rd. opened in June.

All rental transactions are done via smartphone. Visit www.cruisersrentals.com to reserve a bike. For more information call 804-564-2568.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
