Bike sharing arrives in the Springs this summer, meaning you’ll be able to hop on a high-tech, purple PikeRide bicycle for short rides around downtown. “It is a transit solution first and foremost, but it is also a great amenity for residents and visitors who want to experience downtown in an interactive way,” says Jolie NeSmith, executive director of PikeRide. Here’s your quick guide to ride.
What’s My Ride?
The fleet consists of 208 eight-speed smart bikes with GPS technology. Find them at 28 docks throughout downtown.
How Much Does It Cost?
A single ride is $2, with options for monthly and annual memberships. Pay with a credit card or the BCycle mobile app for 30-60 minutes. The self-locking bikes can be dropped off back at the docks or within the service area for an extra fee.
Where Can I Go?
The bikes are geofenced to stay within the Legacy Loop, a roughly 12-square-mile area spanning east to west from Shooks Run to the Pikes Peak Greenway and north to south from Fillmore Street to I-25. Future expansion will include the Westside, Manitou and The Broadmoor.
