YES! It is true what you may (or may not) have heard: Boulder Bike Sharing will be dropping 100 pedal-assist ebikes into our system starting this Friday, February 26th! We beat our own launch date by a week!

Through a partnership with BCycle/Trek Bikes. These ebikes will allow riders to get up hills with ease and go farther faster, with a goal of replacing car trips and facilitating multimodal lifestyles while enabling the decade-old Boulder Bike Sharing nonprofit to experiment with a new business model. The Electric bikes will be available to all Boulder B-cycle system riders, including participants of Boulder Bike Sharing’s existing and planned equity initiatives, as the organization seeks to do its part to advance social and climate justice. Download the BCycle app or head to www.boulderbcycle.org for more information on the system’s passes, which range from pay-per-trip to monthly and annual options.


Trek’s BCycle Electric bikes feature a best-in-class BOSCH motor, Shimano brakes for safe and reliable performance in all seasons and front & rear integrated lighting for safe and visible riding. They are Class 1 ebikes with smooth pedal assist, making electrified riding feel instantly familiar to all bike riders.


Since May of 2011, Boulder Bike Sharing has been providing Boulder with reliable bike-sharing service, and the Boulder B-cycle system now counts 300 shared bikes across key areas and destinations in Boulder. Boulder was an early adopter of bike sharing, and the Boulder B-cycle system still ranks among the largest and densest for cities of a similar population. The Boulder B-cycle system has provided over 100,000 shared bike trips every year since 2017, and in 2020 set a new annual record for system use as CU students flocked to the service during the fall semester. Boulder Bike Sharing’s 2020 strategic plan calls for the electrification of the system and the exploration of partnerships and regional opportunities, and in partnership with Trek riders of the Boulder B-cycle system are almost certain to establish new ridership records in 2021.
