If you don’t own a bicycle, you have a convenient alternative
You’ll find B-cycle stations on Dodge and Scott Campuses. There are stations throughout the city, including the Dundee and Aksarben neighborhoods. Heartland B-Cycle is a bike sharing system that allows you to get a bicycle when you need one, and return it safely to any station.
A pass enables you to check out a bike as many times as you’d like. You can bike for one hour with no additional charge.
B-Cycle passes vary in cost from $6 for a 24-hour pass, $10 for a monthly pass, and $57 for an annual student pass.
