Bike Share is a revolution on two wheels.

By providing a network of bicycles that can be rented on-demand from stations located around the city, it changes everything about urban transportation. The process is easy: you go to a station, pick up a bike, and go. Then put it away at another station when you’re done.

That’s it. 

Bike share is for everyone wanting to get around Memphis, from commuters to shoppers to fitness-seekers to tourists. The bicycles are safe, simple, and sturdy and designed for users with a range of abilities.

Step 1: Pay

Purchase a membership using a debit or credit card from the BCycle app, a station kiosk (where available), or online, or call us at 901.590.2127 for cash payments.

These are our traditional bikes. With a smart "Explore" bike, you can ride up to 2-hours and then you'll incur $0.20/per minute AFTER the first 2 hours.
*Not available at Shelby Farms

These are our new electric pedal assist bikes. You can ride up to 20 minutes and then will incur $0.20/per minute AFTER the first 20 minutes.
*Currently only available at Shelby Farms Park (but more stations coming soon!)

Get the best of both worlds with unlimited 60 min rides on both eBikes and smart “Explore” bikes. If you keep your bike longer than 60 minutes, it’s an additional $0.20 per minute.

Step 2: Pick Up

Using your membership card, BCycle app, or user ID, check out a bike from any of our stations. The app shows you all of the station locations and how many bikes are at each station.

Step 3: Pedal

Go Explore!

For the traditionalists.
You create your own power on our traditional bikes. There’s a U-lock incorporated into each bike that goes in your basket while you ride -- your check-out time ends when you replace the U-lock in the bike frame. 

Ready for a power trip?
The optional power boost can be turned on using the power button on the top of the left handlebar screen.

Step 4: Put Up

Dock and lock your bike at any station with available space. Currently, the Shelby Farms Park stations can only accommodate eBikes. 

Make sure to lock the smart "Explore" bikes to the dock arms and the eBikes front wheel in the front wheel lock dock. Check the app to make sure your ride has ended.
