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.

Colorado Springs, currently, only has one approved bike share provider with PikeRide but the city has the possibility of allowing more bike share operators into the city limits by applying through for a Bike Share Operator License with the city clerk.
