About KC B-Cycles
KC B-Cycles is a public bike share system with 30+ stations throughout the Kansas City Metro. They are a great way to be active, explore the city and have a positive impact on the environment. You’ll find KC B-Cycles stations near many attractions, including Boulevard Brewing Company, The Nelson Atkins, The Plaza and more.
Using the bikes are simple – either pay ahead of time online or pay at the bike station. If you pay online, you’ll get a code to enter at the station where you grab your bikes. If you’re going to ride for over an hour, save money and buy a 24-hour pass online for $7.
Pay As You Go Pass: Ride once and pay $3 per 30 minutes you use the bike.
Multi-Day Pass: If you plan on riding several times in a week or month, grab Multi-Day passes to save some money. They offer:
- $7 for 24 hours
- $15 for 7 days
- $25 for 30 days
Annual Membership: Great for locals who ride KC B-Cycles frequently throughout the year. You get free 60-minute rides year-round for $65. An annual membership gives you access to B-Cycles in other cities across the U.S., like Nashville, Denver and Austin.
Be sure to check out the station map before you bike. You can click on each station and see how many bikes are available.
Where to Ride a KC B-Cycle:
Brush Creek Trail
Indian Creek Trail
Berkley Riverfront Park
We rode on the Trolley Trail, a 6-mile walking/running path. It goes through some of my favorite Kansas City neighborhoods, Waldo and Brookside. We stopped at KC Bier Co. for a quick beer on their patio right off the trail.
The KC B-Cycle Program has premade tours – allowing you to explore Kansas City in a unique way. Each bike comes with a lock, so you can make stops throughout the city.
