How It Works

Start by purchasing an access pass either online, or at any B-station when you’re ready to ride. Checkout a B-cycle from any B-station, ride, and return it to any other B-station that is closer to your final destination. When you’re ready to ride again, use the same credit card or access pass to checkout another B-cycle. It’s that simple!

You can take an unlimited number of trips during your access period. All trips 30 minutes or less are included in the cost of your access pass.

Creative Date Ideas

by CIYANA JOHNSON | Oct 23, 2015

We all get tired of the traditional dinner and a movie date sometimes, but we also don’t want to spend a lot of money to do anything too extravagant. Here’s a list of ideas to try with a significant other to spice things up as well as save some cash:

  1. Take a class together – The app Groupon always has good deals on classes such as painting, pottery, dancing, yoga, etc.
  2. Wine tasting – If you’re 21+, there are several places throughout Charlotte that allow wine tasting, such as The Wine Vault. Total Wine & More even offers some free classes and events on making your own beer or wine.
  3. Bike riding – If you have your own bike, then bike riding through town or on a trail with your significant other is totally free. However, if you don’t own a bike, there’s a rental service called Charlotte B-Cycle that allows you to rent a bike for different rates. They have a 24 hour rental pass for as low as $8.
  4. Documentary night – For those nights when you just want to stay inside and enjoy each other’s company, the website Documentary Heaven allows users to watch any type of documentary for free; you don’t even have to sign up.
  5. Bowling – AMF Bowling has some good deals on bowling such as College Night, $2 Tuesdays, and Dollar Mania. Strike City is a bowling alley and restaurant that has unlimited bowling on Mondays for $15. They have group deals as well.
  6. Open mic poetry night – There are a couple spots around Charlotte that hosts poetry nights on different days of the week for about $10. Check out the NoDa area. There’s also a poetry slam every month at Slam Charlotte.
  7. Game night – If you have games at home, then game nights can be free with just the costs of snacks. However, Dave & Busters has a Eat & Play combo for $16.99!
  8. Hiking – Crowders Mountain State Park has free admission and different level trails to choose from. Great way to workout and spend time with your partner.
  9. Live shows – The Neighborhood Theatre has shows all throughout the month and ticket prices range but are usually no more than $20. UpStage in the NoDa area also has live shows of music, comedy, theatre, spoken word/poetry, dance, etc.
