River Cities Bike Share Program
Our community Bike Share is launching May 6th! Known as River Cities Bike Share, this innovative initiative – the first bike share program of its kind in Southeast Indiana – features approximately 30 “ready-to-ride” bicycles located throughout the cities of Lawrenceburg and Aurora. Equipped with a locking mechanism, the bikes will be housed at several docking sites in both communities, and can be reserved and rented via an app or onsite.
Each of the Shimano seven-speed bicycles will be available on a ride-and-return basis. The cost to ride is $3 for the first hour and $2 for each additional hour.
Located on 75 acres in Guilford, Beiersdorfer Orchard is owned and operated by Hilda Beiersdorfer and family. Here you will find rows and rows of fruit trees where the apples are picked and washed before selling. Some are processed into cider and apple butter. The farm market has a variety of items for sale, including homegrown apples, peaches and plums, along with products for canning. Because the Beierdorfers are able to store the apples, the orchard makes cider year-round.
Tours for children and adults are also available. For more information call Hilda at 812-487-2695.
Business Hours at Beiersdorfer Orchard:
Monday - Saturday, 9 am. - 6 pm

Donna and Richard Salatin started their orchard in 1984 as a hobby. It has since grown into a full-time business. Located on Chesterville Road in Moores Hill, Salatin's Orchard grows and sells 24 varieties of apples. The Salatins also make their own cider. Apples that have fallen on the ground, however, are never used for cider or sold. Instead, the fallen apples are donated to the Red Wolf Sanctuary in Rising Sun to feed the bears that live there.
Business hours at Salatin’s Orchard:
Monday-Sunday, 10 am - 7 pm
(All times are EDST/Cincinnati time).
Berries, pears, winter squash, honey and apple butter also are grown or produced and sold at Salatin’s, depending on season. To learn more, or to find out about taking a tour, call Donna or Richard at 812-744-3481.
