Spartanburg's B-cycle is the First Bike Sharing System in the Southeast!
Spartanburg B-cycle is the first bike sharing system in the Southeast. We have placed self-service bike rental stations (B-stations) on the Rail Trail, in Morgan Square, and at Wofford and Converse Colleges. Spartanburg B-cycle members will be able to pick up one of the bikes at any B-station and drop it off at any B-station.
That’s why we say it’s magic: a bike that’s there when you need it and gone when you don’t.
Bike sharing makes it economical and convenient to use bikes for trips that are too far to walk but too short to drive. As a member, you can use a B-cycle to run an errand, grab lunch, travel from the bus stop to your office, or just get some fresh air and exercise. There are as many reasons to use a B-cycle as there are members!
Spartanburg's B-cycle is an initiative of Partners for Active Living and is a part of Bike Town Spartanburg. This effort is a community-wide collaboration dedicated to sustaining and improving Spartanburg’s national designation as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists.
Four groups – City of Spartanburg, Palmetto Cycling Coalition, Freewheelers of Spartanburg and Partners for Active Living – are working to create a healthier, more active and more bicycle-friendly community.
In September 2007, Spartanburg reached its stated goal, earning a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Community designation and became the first bike friendly community in the state of South Carolina.
The City of Spartanburg was designated as a Bicycle Friendly Community for another 4 years as of May 2012!
