Photo Thursday: The Denver B-cycle As Public Art

Denver, Colorado, like many cities, has a bike share programB-cycle stations can be found at 53 locations all around the city and, once in awhile, those stations with their shiny red bikes almost become works of art.
I'm sure Nancie and her friends at the Budget Travelers Sandbox have some some great Photo Thursday images of their own posted. Head on over and check it out!

Safe Travels!

  1. I think the bike share programme that many cities have today is a great idea. In Australia you have to wear a helmet biking so you also have to find one of the outlets that will hire subsidised helmets to you. I'd hope that this wouldn't stop the spontaneity of hiring a bike!

    1. We have a very successful program here in Minneapolis/St. Paul as well, in part because helmets aren't required. Of course, there are people who want to see them required. As you know, it's a lot harder to make this workable when you need to have a helmet.

  3. I love visiting cities with bike share programs. It's such a great way to get around! I like the contrast of the red bikes against the foliage.

  4. We have a program in San Antonio that my kids were fascinated with this summer. Makes you just want to rent one and take a ride!

  5. Fabulous shot!
    Whenever I see bike stations, I always think of the huge one we had at our high school.

  6. Great shot! I love all the colors here and how the bikes are all lined up. We've always gone to Denver during the winter ehich probably explains why we've never seen these stations. What a wonderful program to keep the city clean and fit.

  7. Daejeon has this program, and it's very popular. I don't bike, but if I did I would make use of it.

    1. I can't imagine biking anywhere urban in Asia - I think it would be scary!

  8. I've never used our Nice Ride system here in Minnesota, but I recently won a FREE one-year membership, so expect more pictures of bikes and some NiceRide tours in the future. I just got my key today, so I'm ready to go.
