B-CYCLE RIDES WILL BE FREE ON MONDAYS
If you’ve never registered for Denver’s B-cycle bikesharing program, now might be a good time to sign up.
Starting March 27, members of the program will get free bike rentals every Monday for the next year. And yes, this offer applies to first-time members, too.
“Monday’s Motivation days are a great way to align our and Kaiser Permanente’s collective mission,” said Denver B-cycle executive director Nick Bohnenkamp. “We want to encourage active living and this is a great way to get more people out riding and focused on healthy commuting habits.”
Here’s how it works: B-cycle riders swipe a credit card to check out a bike at a B-cycle kiosk — there are 737 bicycles at 89 stations in 10 central Denver neighborhoods — but the normal $9 access fee is waived for rides of 30 minutes or less.
Rider fees cover 60 percent of B-cycle’s $1.6 million annual budget; grants and sponsors make up the rest.
Kaiser Permanente Colorado is nonprofit B-cycle’s founding funder.
