Why it’s called the magic bike

San Antonio B-cycle is one of the first large-scale municipal bike sharing systems in the United States. We have over 50 special bike stations (B-stations) in downtown San Antonio in highly visible and trafficked areas and as far south as Mission Espada and as far north as the Witte Museum. San Antonio B-cycle members will be able to pick up one of the gray bikes at any B-station and drop it off at any B-station.

That’s why we say it’s magic: a bike that’s there when you need it and gone when you don’t.

Bike sharing makes it economical and convenient to use bikes for trips that are too far to walk but too short to drive. As a member, you can use a B-cycle to run an errand, grab lunch, travel from the bus stop to your office, or just get some fresh air. There are as many reasons to use a B-cycle as there are members!

With your magic gray bike, you don’t have to look for a parking space or bring your own bike with you everywhere you go. Plus, riding a B-cycle is good for you and good for the environment. It’s the newest and best way to get around town.

The B-cycles are specially designed for both you and the city: B-cycles fit people short and tall, thanks to an easy-to-use adjustable seat post. Short or tall, you’ve got stuff, and that’s why there’s a great basket to stow your things while riding. Fenders, skirt guards and chainguards keep your clothes clean. Automatic lights help keep you safe. Three speeds are perfect for San Antonio streets. You’ll love the magic gray bike!

San Antonio B-cycle is designed to encourage you to use a B-cycle for all your short trips. Once you’ve paid your modest membership fee, you can take an unlimited number of rides, and there is no charge for the first 30 minutes of every ride. See you on a gray bike!
