Boulder To Keep B-Cycles Rolling This Winter

BOULDER (CBS4) - Officials at the nonprofit B-cycle bike share system program in Boulder have decided to keep the program rolling along throughout the winter.

Interim Executive Director Bob Koenig said they were given a lot of feedback about staying open this winter after the program was closed in mid-December through mid-March last year.

"There was a chorus of support from all types of users: workers and students who use our bikes for their 'last mile' commute, the downtown errand-runners and lunch-hour recreational riders, locals who enjoy rides with their out-of-town guests, and of course our wonderful sponsors and City/County supporters," Koenig said in a statement.

B-cycle tested two B-stations last winter to see how they stood up to winter conditions and was pleased with the results.

B-cycle will open two new B-stations in November at Broadway and Iris and 33rd and Fisher, next to the Boulder County Clerk and Recorder's Office.

"We are very excited and proud to be opening new B-Cycle stations at two of our busiest public service locations," Boulder County Commissioner Will Toor said.

The program launched on May 20, 2011, and has become part of a growing national trend in active transportation.
