BCycle Route Maps
Below is a list of many cool places you can visit from the University of Houston on a BCycle. Don’t forget, if you are a BCycle member, you get the first 60 minutes free each time you check out a bike!
This means you can check out a campus BCycle, ride it to the zoo (Coogs get free admission with a student ID), and dock the bike at Hermann Park Lake Plaza while you vist the animals. When your're ready to leave, you can check out another BCycle and ride back to campus without ever being charged an overage fee (which only occurs for rides over an hour). Not to mention you don’t have to worry about your bike being stolen while you visit Shasta!
These routes are also downloadable to most all GPS devices. Simply click the "download" button beneath the route map for hands-free directions.
Please be sure to send any questions about how to get the most out of your BCycle or feedback on the routes to firstname.lastname@example.org. If there are road closures, unsafe intersections, or a new route you would like to see, send them our way so we can make adjustments.
