Broward County is gearing up for the launch of its newest mode of public transportation with Broward B-cycle on December 14, 2011, in Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, and Pompano Beach. The day marks the first county bike sharing system to launch in the nation and the first tri-city launch of its kind.
Broward B-cycle, an alternative form of public transportation, is facilitated by Broward County Transit resulting from an agreement between B-cycle and the Broward County Board of County Commissioners. It is an affordable, clean and simple way to get around town. Users can check out a bike from any self service station and return it to any other station nearby. The B-cycles are equipped with a GPS system that tracks mileage, calories burned and carbon offsets. To access the bikes, register on broward.bcycle.com or use a credit card at the self-service kiosks (B-stations). Users must be 18 years or older with a valid credit card.
The kick-off begins in Hollywood at 10 a.m., 326 Johnson Street; continues in Fort Lauderdale at 1:30 p.m. in Esplanade Park, 400 SW 2 ST; and concludes in Pompano Beach at the Pompano Beach Aquatic Center, 798 NE 18 Avenue, with a bike ride immediately following the 4 p.m. ceremony.
Broward County Vice Mayor Commissioner Kristin Jacobs, who spearheaded the initiative to bring bike sharing to Broward County, will preside at each municipal launch event. The events will feature a mass bike ride and include remarks from Humana Florida Commercial Operations President Tim Love, Hollywood Mayor Peter Bober, Fort Lauderdale Vice Mayor Bobby DuBose, Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher, and a representative from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). Residents, the business community and supporters are encouraged to attend the free events and take part in what is sure to be a memorable day in Broward County history.
B-cycle is a partnership among Trek Bicycle, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, and Humana, Inc., one of the leading health care companies in Florida and a presenting sponsor of Broward B-cycle. Funding is also made available from an intermodal grant in the amount of $311,000 from FDOT for bikes and infrastructure.
For more information on Broward B-cycle launch events or to view a map of B-station locations, visit broward.bcycle.com, call (954) 467-6822, or become a fan on Facebook. Enter code BCYCLE2011 on broward.bcycle.com to receive $10 off of an annual membership for a limited time.

Red steel 54cm fixed-gear bike with front brake stolen Monday shortly after midnight (12/6) from outside The DRB on NE 14th Street/Biscayne Blvd. The bicycle was locked up with cable combo lock (not recommended) along to another bike, a Giant MTB, both were stolen. If you have any info contact James.
Here's some advice for all local bicycle owners. If you currently do not have a recent photograph of your bike(s) and the serial number(s) recorded you should take a few minutes out of your day and do so. Far too often victims of bike thefts do not have a recent photo or any at all of their ride. Vague descriptions and stock photos of a bike which some what resembles yours is not the way to go. PHOTOGRAPH YOUR BIKE TODAY!
In recent weeks there's been an abundance of bike thefts reported in Miami. Unfortunately most of these thefts are being reported to us or on Facebook, Twitter, etc and not to the police. While I recommend using all of these media outlets to get the word out, it is still very important to call the police and file a report. Even if your bike is worth just $75, the police need to be made aware of this bike theft epidemic.
Also, if your bike has been stolen you should check Craigslist and pawn shops in the area to see if someone is selling your property.
The more information victims share regarding their loss (how, when, where), the better it may help other cyclists in the community not succumb to thieves.
