The Denver Bike Share program is having great success after only 6 weeks. Since the launch of B-Cycle on Earth Day, there have been almost 8,000 registered users. Over 10 percent of those people have signed up for an annual membership! There are 42 stations all over the metro area with 400 bikes in circulation. While there are still a few hiccups, the program is working and people are enjoying the concept. Bike sharing is designed for short one way trips, it costs $5 for a 24-hour period. You can take as many trips as you would like in that time frame but if you keep the bike out of a dock for over 30 minutes, usage fees start to rack up. It has been so much fun to see people riding around Riverfront Park on the red bikes. Every time I walk past the Commons Park B-Cycle station there is a different number of bikes on the rack. It is a great way to explore and see the city on a beautiful summer day.
B-Cycle is Working!
