Colorado Springs Bike Share


PikeRide is Colorado Spring’s local Bike Share program, Founded initially by The Downtown Partnership when they began soliciting sponsorship for a bike share program in late spring 2017. PikeRide initially launched in June of 2018 with 208 purple pedal bikes serving the downtown core. It didn’t take long for the public to voice their desire for electric-assist bikes to conquer our varied and hilly terrain. Within six months of launch PikeRide transitioned the entire fleet to electric-assist bikes which have the identifiable orange saddles. As of January 1, 2020 PikeRide now operates as its own stand alone 501(c)3 nonprofit.
