Bike sharing program rolls back in for spring

The bikes are back in town.

The Denver B-cycle program — which had been closed for winter since December — officially re-opened March 14.

All 50 bike kiosks around Denver — including two on campus and one near the DU light-rail station — will be stocked with the popular red loaner bikes.

Benjamin Turner (MBA ’08), director of sales, marketing and public relations for Denver B-cycle, says all bikes were overhauled over the winter. The bikes have different handle grips and sturdier kickstands.

Additionally, “the overall kiosk experience is much better,” Turner says, citing new color LCD screens that improve responsiveness and functionality.

On the first day that the bikes were back, 939 trips were taken throughout Denver, Turner says.

Now through Earth Day on April 22, an annual B-cycle membership or renewal is on sale for $49. The normal cost is $65.
