Boulder, CO is one of this country’s most bike-friendly cities, being one of only three to garner the coveted “Platinum” rating on the League of American Bicyclists “Bicycle Friendly Communities” list. To add to their already excellent programs, Boulder will be rolling out a B-Cycle bike-sharing program this spring. From the Boulder B-Cycle website:
Coming in May, 2011…
Boulder B-cycle is bringing the magic of bike sharing to Boulder. We’re engaging the community in our mission to provide a healthy, green, fun way for Boulder’s residents and visitors to get around town. When we launch next May, you’ll be able to pick up a B-cycle from one of 25 B-stations conveniently located around Boulder. Whether you want to roll from the bus to the office, run errands at lunch, take a relaxing spin along the Boulder Creek Path, or cruise to Happy Hour, B-cycle will help get you there. Just swipe your card, grab a bike, and ride! It’s simple—and it’s good for your health, your pocketbook, our environment, and our community.
To start, the program will feature 200 bikes and 25 stations spread throughout the area, with hopes of growing the service in the future. Memberships will run $5 per day or $50 per year. Boulder memberships can also be used with Denver’s B-Cycle program.
