How do I become a PikeRide member?
Checking out a PikeRide bike is easy! You can create a PikeRide account three different ways: by visiting the Join Now page; by downloading the BCycle mobile app; or by visiting one of six user kiosks located in the downtown core.
Next, choose the membership that works for you.
- 24-hour membership ($10): Unlimited rides of up to 60 minutes for 24 hours
- Monthly membership ($25): Unlimited rides of up to 60 minutes for 30 days!
- Annual membership ($90): Unlimited rides of up to 60 minutes for an entire year!
- Single ride passes also are available for $2 for rides of up to 30 minutes
If you purchase a monthly or annual membership, you will receive a membership card from PikeRide in the mail. You can use that membership card to check out a bike by simply holding the card over the RFID reader found on the handle bars. You can also simply download the BCycle app on your smart phone and enter the unlock code indicated on the bike screen into the BCycle app.
A special U-lock located on the rear wheel well of the bike will disengage once the bike is checked out. Simply store the U-lock in the basket located on the front of your PikeRide bike and begin your ride!
Any single ride lasting longer than 60 minutes will accrue an additional $5 fee for all consecutive ride time lasting longer than 60 minutes.
Where can I go with PikeRide?
The PikeRide service area spans 12 square miles of the greater Legacy Loop area, from Fillmore Street to the north, Fountain Boulevard to the south, Union Boulevard to the east, and Interstate 25 to the west. Riders may leave the service area as long as they return bikes within the service area at the end of their ride. Riders who end their ride outside the service area will be charged a $20 fee. Riding is allowed on well-maintained urban trails in the service area but is not permitted on mountainous or sandy single-track, through water, through river/creek beds, or in any location that is prohibited, illegal and/or a nuisance to others
