Miami Beach gets B-cycle!

I've been told Miami Beach will be one of the US cities getting B-cycle, a bicycle sharing program inspired by Velib in Paris, France. Not sure on the exact date but apparently happening within the next year. This is very exciting, check out the video below. Pretty amazing stuff.



About B-cycle:

B-cycle is the zero-hassle, zero-emissions way to get around town. It's a bike sharing program that meets the transportation, health, and environmental needs of our communities. One that adapts to any size city, corporation or campus. It's wind in your hair, air in your lungs and bugs in your teeth. It's free and spontaneous but also organized and practical.

B-cycle is the only "next"-generation bike-share program. Integrated data tracking will automatically capture information such as your distance traveled, equivalent calories burned and carbon offset after each ride. It will then upload this data to your personal user profile on Bcycle.com. B-cycle is the future of bike sharing, and it's available to your city now.

B-cycle is a collaboration between four major players in three industries.

Humana
Trek Bicycle Corporation
Crispin Porter + Bogusky
SRAM

All four share one common goal: cultural change. B-cycle will change the way you get around. And that will change our communities. So grab a B-cycle from the nearest B-station and we're on our way.

Here's a great video I found online that shows how Velib (Paris) works.

  2. Update: B-Cycle will *not* be providing the bike share program. The contract was won by a local company called Deco Bike, LLC. Still searching for more info.
