Denver B-cycle 2012 Season Launches Today


The 2012 Denver B-cycle Season is up and riding! 


The season kicked off today with an event at The Pepsi Center featuring representatives from Denver B-cycle and the 2012 NCAA Women's Final Four Basketball Championship, which will be staged in Denver later this month. There Denver B-cycle announced it will offer a half price special of $4 for a 24-hour membership from March 31 to April 3, encouraging visitors and locals to stay active by biking to the many NCAA Women's Final Four events happening around the city.  


The first riders out on the course were those conquering the "Tour de B-cycle," a challenge that requires riders to visit all 52 stations in one day. Last year, 143 riders had their name listed on the B-cycle web site and received a special T-Shirt in recognition of the feat.

 

 

"Denver B-cycle ridership doubled from our first season to our second and with projected hikes in gasoline prices this year we expect increased interest in our third season," said Denver B-Cycle Executive Director Parry Burnap."The B-cycle is clearly something that many people depend on for a variety of needs and it's becoming a familiar feature on the Denver landscape. Just like spring training and the first bloom of an early tulip, we hope the return of the B-cycles to their bike-sharing locations becomes a familiar rite of spring." 


"We are thrilled to support Denver-B-cycle because cycling encourages an active, healthy lifestyle. But it's also terrific to see the system blossom and to see the B-cycle become a viable transportation option," said Donna Lynne DrPH, president, Kaiser Permanente Colorado, Denver B-cycle presenting sponsor.


Passes range from $8 for unlimited 24 hours of use to $80 for annual memberships.The first 30 minutes of each checkout are free. Checkouts longer than 30 minutes cost $1 for the next 30 minutes and $4 per half hour after that.  Note: Annual memberships are discounted at a rate of $59 through April 22, 2012.  Details and a kiosk locator map are available at http://denver.bcycle.com/

 

Denver B-cycle is one of the largest bike-sharing programs in the country. In 2011, some 200,000 trips moved riders a combined 431,000 miles. That's the equivalent of 120 round-trips to New York City. The trips save riders money in automobile costs and provide a non-polluting and healthy mode of transportation.

    I've been tracking my food for almsot a month now on SparkPeople. I can see how it would be really helpful for a lot of people, but with me, I've been keeping track of my food intake in my head now for years tracking it online this past month has mainly just shown me that I'm eating too much of the same foods (which I already knew). But yes, I agree that accountability is the key to success!

    There's no electronic noise-canceling in these hephedonas. They do completely enclose the ear, however, so that will help. You will probably still be able to hear the train though, depending on how loud the train is.

    Hey could I use these headphones when I go for runs? I oreerdd the HD 202 II headphones and they come with a belt clip to reduce the cord length but do you think the headphones are comfortable and sturdy when you wear them? Thanks!

    This specific site saved me $487 for the eintre year! They are an online specialist and are generally kind, caring, and take wonderful care of their customers. Most importantly for me, they answer to emails and response calls with humans.

    I just find it especially ioirnc that Kaiser has Thrive as their slogan. One of my kids just spent 2 days at a state-of-the-art, out of network children's hospital last week, and Kaiser will be eating all but $10 of it because it all fell within their protocol for pediatric emergencies. They may not give us ABA coverage (yet), but I take my pound of flesh from them where I can.
