Bicycle enthusiasts next year will have another opportunity to engage in their passion when Iowa-based bike share business Koloni sets up in Willmar.

The Willmar City Council last week approved bringing Koloni to town. The city will manage and own the Willmar program.

The Koloni share program will allow people to rent a bicycle by the hour for a nominal fee, using a cellphone and credit or debit card. When the rider is done with the bike, he will return it to one of the bike hubs located across the city.

The council approval is contingent on the city administrator and city attorney completing and approving the purchase agreement with Koloni for 40 refurbished bikes. The approval will ensure a 2019 launch of the new program, said Pam Vruwink, a member of Willmar Bikes, a local education and advocacy group.
