    The first large bicycle sharing program was born on the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, April 22, 2010, in Denver, Colorado.  The program, “B-Cycle,” is the third such program in North America, behind Montreal in 2009 and Mexico City in 2010.  The system of sharing bikes is widely used throughout Europe and Asia.  There are 51 “B-stations” throughout Denver where you can rent bikes for various time frames and memberships are also available.
