Jun 08, 2015 04:00PM ● By Tiffany Kosartes

Lisle, IL – Bike while you golf? River Bend Golf Club has recently adopted this cutting-edge concept. In May 2015, the public, nine-hole course acquired four Golf Bikes, offering customers a new way to cart their clubs through its scenic fairways.

The Golf Bike is a green alternative to the traditional gas cart that promotes a healthy lifestyle and allows cycling enthusiasts an opportunity to combine two of their favorite activities. River Bend Golf Club is an avid supporter of green initiatives and is excited to be able to present their customers with this eco-friendly option. Moreover, The Golf Bike is an inexpensive alternative, available for rent at half the cost of a gas cart at only $5. To learn more about River Bend Golf Club or book a tee time online, visit

Since its inception in 2010, The Golf Bike has been enthusiastically accepted by the golf industry and is currently being used on courses in the United States and Canada. In 2013, inventor Todd May presented The Golf Bike at the PGA Show in the Inventor’s Spotlight. Todd’s background in the cycling profession and history in golf product design and manufacturing put a new spin on a traditional sport, providing the avid golfer with the ability to play at the speed of a gas cart.
