Book a Bike

bcycle bikes at Main Library

Available at the Main Library

We are partnering with BCycle for our Book A Bike service. Visit the accounts desk at the Main Library. Our staff will check out to you a BCycle card that has directions on how to use the bike. At the end of every 60-minute trip, return the bike to any Boulder BCycle station. This program is only available with a valid Boulder Public Library Adult card.

Please be aware that it may take up to 24 hours to activate the Book A Bike card once you have completed the Bcycle User Agreement.

Which bikes can I use?
Both regular and e-bikes if available.

What do I do to get riding?

  1. Check out the Book A Bike card available at the Main Library.
  2. Fill out the User Agreement (It may take up to 24 hours to activate Book A Bike card.)
  3. Head to any BCycle station (map).
  4. Press the silver button on the dock next to the bike you choose to ride & tap your B-card to release the (e)bike.
  5. Start riding! (We recommend you wear a helmet.)

At the end of every trip, return the bike to any Boulder BCycle station by firmly pushing into a free dock until you hear 3 beeps!

    Do I get to keep the bike for a whole week, or do normal B-Cycle rules apply?
    Check out the Book A Bike card and ride unlimited 60- minute trips for the week! The rider must plug in the bike to a station every 60 minutes.
