How Houston BCycle Works


What is the BCycle bike like?

BCyles have tons of cool features, incuding auto-generated front and back lights, a built-in lock and key, and three-speed gear shift. Click here to learn more about the BCycle set-up.

How do I know if my BCycle was returned properly?

When returning your BCycle, make sure you push the bike all the way into an open dock. You should hear 3 beeps and see the green light flash to confirm your return. Try giving your bike a tug to see if it comes back out. Make sure to opt-in to text messages–you’ll receive a text every time your b-cycle is properly docked!

Does Houston BCycle provide helmets?

Houston BCycle does not provide helmets, although we highly encourage wearing one while riding. Members can visit Bike Barn or HAM Cycles to get 20% off of a helmet purchase.

Is it legal to ride without a helmet?

In Houston, anyone 18-and-older may ride without wearing a helmet.

How old do you have to be?

You must be 18 years of age of older to ride Houston BCycle.
