Bike sharing program launches in Colorado Springs


Colorado Springs’ first-ever bike share program is now up and running.

More than 50 riders and sponsors joined Mayor John Suthers for the inaugural ride Tuesday morning. The Pike Ride program will feature more than 200 purple bikes and 28 hubs within 12 square miles. 

These smart bikes are equipped with solar-powered GPS-enabled display screens. You can purchase a monthly or daily membership, or even single-ride passes.

“It’s an amazing way to connect people, mobility issues across the city, help with our transportation issues, help with healthy lifestyles,” Jolie Nesmith with Pike Rides said. “It runs the gamut.” 

Prices rance from $2 for 30 minutes to $90 for an annual membership.
