Bike Share Launched!
Last Fall, Bike BC introduced its pilot program of the bike share program in collaboration with the administration. After months of meetings with various staff and faculty members at BC, as well as communicating with the external partners, we are proud to announce that the program has been unveiled at last. This year we were able to expand the program beyond the main campus onto Newton campus.
The bike share functions as a free service in which members who have attended a safety training session can "check out" a bike for a period of 3 days, with the option to renew it. We are working with staff at the O'Neill Library and Newton Law Library to manage the distribution of the keys and light sets for the bikes.
Midnight Marathon Bike Ride
Every year, cyclists and bike enthusiasts from around the Boston area ride the route of the Boston Marathon at midnight the night before in what is aptly called the Midnight Marathon Bike Ride. Last year, a small group from Bike BC completed the route and had a phenomenal time. We would love to have more join us this year, so please let us know if you are interested.
As the weather continues to improve, look for announcements about group rides on our Facebook page. We are always looking for ideas for locations to ride to. Past locations have included the Charles River Esplanade and the Arnold Arboretum. Rides usually take place on a weekend with nice weather, are non-drop, and all are welcome.
