Denver B-Cycle Announces Expanded Bike Share Program
Denver B-cycle launched on April 22, 2010 as the nation’s first large-scale citywide bicycle sharing program. Designed to help Denver residents and visitors increase their daily activity, save money and reduce carbon emissions, Denver B-cycle offers the first U.S. public bike sharing system as an alternative to using cars for short commutes and errands.
Popularized in Europe and Asia where there are more than 50 cities with a public bike sharing system, Denver follows on the heels of two other cities in North America that have launched successful bike sharing systems in the past year – Montreal in the summer of 2009 and Mexico City in the spring of 2010.
“Coloradans embrace healthy and sustainable living, so it’s natural that the Mile High City is now home to the first large-scale bike sharing system in the U.S.,” said then Mayor (now Governor) John Hickenlooper. “Bike sharing is a viable transportation option to help improve the overall health of Americans and reduce our carbon footprint. Let’s start a two-wheel revolution. Let’s make every day Bike-to-Somewhere Day."
