All full time students, faculty and staff are now eligible for a free Boulder B-cycle annual membership, an $88 retail value. The free memberships are made possible by a partnership between the CU Environmental Center and CU Transportation Services with Boulder B-cycle, a Boulder-based bikesharing nonprofit. 

The yearlong membership provides unlimited rides of up to 60 minutes. Riders will be charged the normal B-cycle hourly rate for rides over 60 minutes and will need to renew their eligible CU credentials annually in the B-cycle app.
