LMU rolls out bike borrowing program

An East Tennessee just rolled out a new program to convince students to ditch their cars and ride some bikes.

It's happening at Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate.

Kristi Blaisdell is a junior from Chicago who has always biked.

She brought her own bicycle to campus her first two years but this time she left it at home.

"Being that the bikes are here I decided not to bring my bike down and I'm actually going to use Turner's bikes," she said.
