Explore Spartanburg on a B-cycle Bike

By:Marie McAden

Date:7/21/2011

Getting around downtown Sparta​nburg just got a whole lot easier thanks to Spartanbu​rg B-cycle, the first bike sharing system in the Southeast.

Bicycles can be picked up at either of two stations — one at the Mary Black Foundation Rail Trail and the other at Morgan Square. Each red cruiser is equipped with three gears, an easily adjustable seat, a basket, bell, lock and a computer that allows you to track mileage, calories burned and carbon offsets. The only thing you’ll need is a helmet.

Here’s how it works: Choose a membership plan and join o​nline or right at the station kiosks. The price of membership is $5 for a day, $15 for 30 days or $30 for a year.

Just swipe your credit card, choose a bike and off you go. The first hour with each use is free. After that, it’s $1 for every additional 30 minutes. You can cruise along Main Street, have lunch at a sidewalk café or take a ride along the two-mile Rail Trail. If you only use the bike for a couple of hours, it’s just $6. Now that’s a deal!

As much as I love walking around town, riding a bike allows you to see so much more. You don’t have to deal with traffic and parking hassles, it’s good for the environment and you’re getting in a workout while sightseeing. It’s a win-win-win situation all the way around.
