Yes, Re-Cycle, but also B-Cycle!

 

Alright Denver, prepare to do your best Lance Armstrong impersonation. Mayor John Hickenlooper and several community partners today announced plans for a citywide bike sharing program - Denver B-Cycle - that will make 500 bikes available to the public at 30 to 40 stations throughout the city beginning this summer. Denver will be one of the first cities nationwide to launch such a comprehensive bike sharing program, which will be funded initially with a $1 million donation from the Denver 2008 Convention Host Committee. The B-Cycle Citywide Bike Sharing Program will focus initially on the Downtown Denver Central Business District, University of Denver campus and adjacent neighborhoods. The bike stations will be situated in a three to four mile radius of Downtown Denver and integrated with the existing multi-modal transit system, including the 16th Street Mall, Denver Union Station, Market Street Station and FasTracks. The program is expected to double in size to more than 1,000 bikes by Spring 2010. While no one will be climbing the French Alps or recklessly racing toward the finish line for the yellow jersey, we will be taking a momentous step toward a more environmentally- friendly and sustainable Downtown.
