Spartanburg's BCycle is the First Bike Sharing System in the Southeast!
Spartanburg BCycle is the first bike sharing system in the Southeast. We have placed self-service bike rental stations (BCycle Stations) on the Rail Trail, in Morgan Square, at Wofford and Converse Colleges and at Harvest Park. Spartanburg BCycle members will be able to pick up one of the bikes at any BCycle Station and drop it off at any BCycle 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 BCycle 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 BCycle as there are members!
Spartanburg's BCycle 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!
The B-cycles are specially designed for both you and the city: B-cycles fit people of all sizes, thanks to an easy-to-use adjustable seat post. A great front basket provides a space to stow your belongings while riding. Fenders, skirt guards and chain-guards keep your clothes clean. Automatic lights help keep you safe at all times of day. Three speeds are perfect for your short commute. You’ll love it!
B-cycle is designed to encourage you to use a a bike for all your short trips. Once you've paid your membership fee, you can take an unlimited number of rides for 30 minutes or less, free!
