Electric Bikes for All: Houston BCycle Has Launched eBikes
Bosch eBike Systems and BCycle have added another major destination to their eBike share program in 2020 - Houston BCycle has launched eBikes! Through the end of 2020, 25 more eBikes will be deployed every week until 100 eBikes are available.
“A fleet of eBikes for Houston BCycle is a big move, and we’re grateful for the support of Commissioner Rodney Ellis and Precinct One. Early on I was skeptical, but I quickly realized the benefits of an eBike when accommodating the wide range of abilities in diverse populations. I want everyone to experience the world on a bike as I have with less limitations and hindrances. The use of eBikes supports just that. With a little boost, everyone can go further!”
~ Doogie Roux, Bosch eBike Systems Ambassador
To find your eBike, download the BCycle Mobile app and look for the lightning bolt symbol to see if an eBike is available. From there, hurry to the station to claim your ride! Remember to check the battery life by pressing the power button on the left handlebar. Once you start pedaling you will feel the boost! As always, be mindful of others and ring the bell when passing. When you’re finished with your ride, you can return the eBike to any station.
“Precinct One is proud to support Houston B-Cycle and the launch of the E-Bike Fleet. This is an important step toward bringing a low-cost, zero emission transportation option to more Houstonians. Precinct One is equally proud of the investments we have made to triple the miles of safe, high-comfort bike lanes in Houston – with more on the way.”
~ Commissioner Rodney Ellis, Precinct One
BCycle would like to thank Harris County Precinct One Commissioner Rodney Ellis for his contribution and all City of Houston partners that helped to make eBikes happen in the city!
