I want to ride my B-cycle!
Posted on March 19
Spring has sprung and we are so excited to have the Colorado sunshine warming us inside and out once again. What better activity is there to do on days such as these than go for a bike ride?! In case you don’t have a bike or you are walking the neighborhood and get the desire to ride one, we have two B-cycle stops here in CCN! B-cycle is a wonderful bike exchange program that allows you to check out a bike and return it to any B-cycle stop around the city, or even the state for that matter. Here in the neighborhood we have one stop located on the west side of Milwaukee St. up against the 299 Milwaukee Street building and another one on the east side of Columbine St. in between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. The B-cycle program is affordable and convenient with tons of bike racks located all across Denver. There is even a cute little basket on the front to store any snacks and/or goodies that you pick up on your ride. So on the next sun shinny day when you are looking for something to do, ride a B-cycle!
