How Spartanburg B-cycle Works

Follow these easy steps

Purchase a membership online or at any BCycle Station.

  1. Spartanburg BCycle offers a single ride pass at the kiosk and 24 hour and annual memberships online. 

Select

Choose a bike from any BCycle Station.

If you have a BCycle Card:
  1. Choose one of the locked bikes.
  2. Press the silver button on the bike’s dock. (Piezo button incorporates piezoelectric technology to convert physical touch/pressure of the push button from mechanical to electrical energy).
  3. Touch your BCycle Card to the square behind the silver button.
  4. Remove the bike once the locks open (dock will start beeping after the bike is unlocked).
If you do not have a BCycle Card, but are already a member:
  1. Press the kiosk button.
  2. Follow the prompts on the touchscreen. When prompted, swipe the same credit card registered with your membership.
  3. When prompted, enter the dock number of the bike you wish to check out.
  4. The kiosk will unlock the bike from the dock you chose. The dock holding the bike will beep until the bike is removed.
If you do not have a BCycle Card and have not yet purchased a membership:
  1. Press the kiosk button.
  2. Follow the instructions on the touchscreen to purchase a Temporary Pass.
  3. When prompted, enter the dock number of the bike you wish to check out.
  4. The kiosk will unlock the bike from the dock you chose. The dock holding the bike will beep until the bike is removed. 

Ride

Grab your bike and go.

  1. Adjust your seat, strap on your helmet and go.
  2. You will be charged $3 for every 30 minutes you ride. 

Return

Park your bike at any BCycle Station.

  1. Return your bike to any BCycle Station by rolling it into an available dock.
  2. Wait for three rapid blinks of the green light and three quick beeps. That’s your signal that the bike has been securely returned.
