Bicycle rentals are coming to Mesa Verde National Park.
Park Superintendent Cliff Spencer announced Monday that aspiring vendors can submit applications to the National Park Service for a commercial use authorization to open a bike-rental operation on roads and trails on Wetherill Mesa. The operation could also allow use of strollers and wheelchairs.
For instructions and an application for an authorization, call the Mesa Verde National Park Concessions Management Division at 529-4613. The deadline for applications is 4 p.m. Feb. 13.
Once all applications are in, the park service will issue the winning vendor a temporary commercial use authorization for an initial term of one year.
