Boulder B-cycle bike sharing arrives at NCAR/UCAR on May 20, 2011 - get ready to ride!
Here at UCAR/NCAR, we're all about transportation options and employee wellness. When the EcoPass was created in 1992, we jumped in to provide bus passes to employees. Just this year, we were recognized as a Platinum-level Bike Friendly Business by Community Cycles. Now, we're one of the first Boulder organizations offering bike sharing to our staff and visitors.
Based on bike sharing's success in Denver and other U.S. and international cities, Boulder is embracing bike sharing as a healthy, green and fun way to get around. Two of the first bike sharing stations in Boulder will be here at NCAR/UCAR, at Center Green and Foothills! Your ticket to ride is a Boulder B-cycle membership, which UCAR will provide to all staff.
What's bike sharing? Imagine having a high quality, comfortable, professionally maintained bike waiting for you to ride, wherever you go. Imagine being able to hop on a bike at NCAR and ride to an offsite meeting, with just the swipe of a membership card. On the weekend, you could be in downtown Boulder and grab a bike from a kiosk there to run a few errands or just enjoy a relaxing ride.
Stay tuned!! More details coming soon.
