Boulder B-cycle

Ride a B-cycle today!

Bike sharing with B-cycle means having access to hundreds of bicycles, all housed in conveniently located kiosks in popular destinations all over town - including stations at CG2 and between FLA and FL2. It's fun, econcomical, and an efficient mode of transportation.

Key Facts for How B-cycle Works:

-As a member, you will have access to an unlimited number of free 60 minute trips. 

-Overtime fees do apply to all trips over 60 minutes. The fee is $3 per every additional half-hour over the 60 minutes.

-To avoid overtime fees, simply check your bike in at any B-cycle station. Once you've checked your bike in, you can immediately check it back out to start a new trip. As long as you check your bike in every 60 minutes, you can continue to ride it for free indefinitely!
