Our staff recently came across a new smart phone app, called Spotcycle. It is pretty amazing. It is basically like a international database/network for all bike share programs. Pretty cool! Below is a little more about it that we found on its website. Click on the picture to head to its website, learn more, and sign up for FREE! While you're at it, add in your favorite b-cycle routes to share with others.

Here's Spotcycle in a nutshell:

  • Locate bike stations on the bike share system.
  • List the ten nearest bike stations.
  • Display the bike and bike dock availability for each bike station.

  • Class your bike routes and annotations into pre-defined categories.

SHARE your routes

  • Or, keep your bike routes private to edit them, and then share them when they're ready!
