Houston BCycle will offer free rides from each of its 60 Houston-area bike share stations on Bike to Work Day, Friday, May 18th, 2018. With the support of their official healthcare partner, CHI St. Luke’s Health, Houston BCycle’s promotion will go to support Houston’s growing bike community on an internationally-celebrated bike advocacy day.
“We’re thrilled to offer everyone a chance to use bike sharing on Bike to Work Day,” said Henry Morris, Marketing & Communications Manager at Houston BCycle. “Since launching our partnership with CHI St. Luke’s Health, our riders have been collectively burning millions of calories each month on our bikes. We hope that a day of free rides will introduce even more people to biking as a healthy, fun, and sustainable transit option.”
On May 18th, anyone will be able to walk up to a Houston BCycle kiosk, swipe their credit card to create a guest account, and check out a bike for free by using the promotional code 51818.
While there is no cap on how many times the code can be used, rides that last longer than 30 minutes will incur a $3.00 overage fee for each additional 30-minute period. As always, riders can dock their bikes at any Houston BCycle station to end their trip.
Houston BCycle’s free trips will also support those attending City of Houston’s official Bike to Work Day event on Friday the 18th. With opening remarks beginning at 7:00 AM, attendees will embark on a 20 minute, 3-4 mile celebratory bike ride to begin and end at Hermann Square in front of City Hall–which has its own Houston BCycle station.
