DENVER (CBS4) – Denver will keep its B-cycle program open year round.
Right now people can use the bikes from 5 a.m. until midnight. Starting Dec. 2 the hours will be slightly shorter — from 6:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m.
Managers say the program has grown to the point where many Denverites depend on the bicycles for daily transportation.
“Whether you need a B-cycle for regular recreation, commuting or the occasional trip or errand, the B-cycle option needs to remain available,” interim Executive Director Nick Bohnenkamp said in a statement.
This year B-cycle opened 29 new stations in Denver. There are now 82 stations. The network provides shared bicycles from the Highlands to Baker, from Five Points to Congress Park. There are over 700 bikes in the system.
