WE-cycle Basics

WE-cycle is designed for short, transit-oriented trips. Whether you want to get to the bus faster or make a one-way trip across town, WE-cycle is there for you.

The first 30-minutes are free, for every ride you take. After 30 minutes, Overtime Fees accrue at rates: + $0.50 per minute for pedal bikes and + $5.00 per minute for e-bikes.

Use Your Smartphone 

The quickest way to get a bike is to download the free app, Transit.  You can use Transit to create your WE-cycle account, find bikes and stations around town, and request unlock codes to ride. It’s also a great app for multi-modal transportation users; Transit connects with RFTA’s schedule and allows you to track real-time bus information.

 

Keycard Access

You can sign up, ride, and unlock a bike without a smartphone. Carry a keycard for the most reliable bike checkout experience, cell service can be spotty at certain stations. Log into your WE-cycle account to request a keycard or pick one up at any of the following locations:

E-Bikes

WE-cycle e-bikes are Class 1 pedal-assist bikes, meaning that a small electric motor (without a throttle) helps propel you forward - up to speeds of 19 miles per hour. These 52 e-bikes make pedaling even easier, especially when biking uphill. Look for the blue and green e-bikes: 26 in Aspen and 26 in the Mid-Valley.

The Station

WE-cycle has 51 stations and all are 100% powered by the Colorado sun. Of these, 7 will automatically recharge the batteries of docked e-bikes. You may checkout or dock any bike at any WE-cycle station.

The Dock

A bike’s parking place. Look to the keypad, at the left of each bike, for implementing your checkout mode of choice - this is where you insert your keycard or type your unlock code from Transit.
