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 2 hours 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.
