I had the pleasure of joining Team Evergreen on one of their super well-organized road rides again today. Although it was flurrying at the start, about 25 riders turned out for what promised (and resulted) to be 50-ish degree temperatures under clear skies.
Today I had the opportunity to try out the Denver B-Cycle program. I had business at Colfax and High Street, and was coming into town from Lakewood on 6th Avenue.
Since I prefer to commute into town from my home west of Golden by motorcycle (especially during these days of high gas prices) I can’t easily transport my commuter bike for mixed-mode travel. The B-Cycle provides a way for me to park the motorcycle pretty close to the western edge of town, and finish the commute under pedal power.
B-Cycles on sale now!
I signed up for an annual pass, optimistic that I’ll take advantage of the program frequently this year. The pass (365 days from first use) is on sale through April 22nd for $49, after which it will return to the normal price of $65.
You can sign up on their website, but as I was already on the road I called the customer service number (303.825.3325) and spoke with a very helpful agent named Nick. He was able to quickly walk me through the sign-up process and answer a couple of questions about the best stations to use for my commute.
