Bike share systems in cities all across the nation have become the greatest alternative transportation in downtown and growing suburban areas. It has created a new but nostalgic option for those who like to get to a destination and not hassle about parking or locking up their own bike and enjoying their merry way.
From east to west there are companies like Capital Bikeshare, and CycleHop and in Texas there is B Cycle a great way to get around the sprawling city when you wanna take in the historic and classic sites like the Riverwalk, the Alamo, and new World Heritage appointed park The Missions trail. Now biking can be a crazy expensive sport, but with the great benefit of a nice workout and a community that fits all ages and levels. It is a wonderful way to get around and get your heart pumping with many miles rolling under your gears.

How did you get to know about B-Cycle?
Ok I had try it out since 2012...and I loved it from 2013 and 2014 when I started serious riding. Over the past year I kept bike riding on Mission trails now in 2015. I have not stop yet on my B-Cycle bike rides. I love to be part of San Antonio's B-Cycle and helping out the Mission's tours.
I get to show people what b cycle is like. Now as I am a B-Cycle staff, I keep the Mission's trails and B-Cycle station nice and clean. Going on my two years. I love it.
