ALERT: CC PikeRide Station Update!
Your PikeRide station locations are changing on campus. We have included a map below so that you can be aware of the change which will take place on Wednesday, January 16th. The stations at Loomis Hall and Mathias Hall are moving to stations at Armstrong Hall and just west of the Worner Campus Center.
Please note that effective February 1, 2019 you will be charged parking fees for parking at Loomis and/or Matthias. Please use the new stations and feel free to contact us with any questions at 719-235-5862
Did you know that Colorado Springs has a city ordinance requiring parked bikes to be tethered or locked?
It is true. Even PikeRide bike share bikes must be locked to a safe object when not in use. That means you cannot free lock (lock your bike to itself) at any random location. All bikes within city limits must be locked to a safe object, preferably a bike rack, when not in use or you could receive a ticket. In support of the city ordinance, PikeRide will suspend user accounts when we locate bikes that have not been tethered/locked.
We have a lot to celebrate with the start of 2019, including our 6 month birthday. Mark your calendars for Friday, January 25th from 6-9 pm! Be prepared for an evening of fun with PikeRide. There will be bike races on the inside track using PikeRide bikes, a track clinic on the outside (main) track, beer, wine, food, and the opportunity to demo the first ever BCycle e-assist bike to hit Colorado Springs. Come on out and join us.

You heard correctly! All members with a current annual membership get FREE parking within our service area for the entire month of January.
