New for 2013, there are two B-cycle stations now located in or near City Park. The Denver Museum of Nature and Science now has a station with 21 bike slots, and the Denver Zoo has a station capable of handling 22 bikes.
B-cycle is Denver’s bicycle sharing program. What started as an idea in the summer of 2007 in an effort to make Denver a more bike-friendly city, has grown into a huge success.
On November 12, 2012, Denver B-Cycle announced that the 500,000th ride was taken.
This expansion into City Park is applauded by the City Park Alliance for several reasons. In addition to providing additional transportation alternatives to the Denver Zoo and Museum of Nature and Science, the stations provide a new method for both tourists and community members to enjoy the City Park experience. The stations also provide a unique access point to venture out further along several adjacent bike corridors such as the well traveled 16th Avenue, 23rd Avenue, and Montview Boulevard bike facilities.
The 2013 season for B-Cycle starts on March 18. More information on the Denver B-Cycle program as well as a station map can be found at the Denver B-Cycle web site: www.denver.bcycle.com
