On the first Friday of every month, head to a Fort Worth Bike Sharing kiosk—there are now 60 across the city—for a free, all-day bike rental. At the kiosk, use promo code 92020. You can also use promo code 92020APP on the BCycle app. To find a map of kiosk locations, go to FortWorthBikeSharing.com.
The free bike rentals are courtesy of Blue Zones Project and Fort Worth Bike Sharing. The Free First Fri-Yay program is offered each first Friday monthly to encourage people to get outside and move naturally. Whether you’re an avid cyclist or just looking for a fun, healthy way to explore Cowtown, you can take advantage of the many trails and bike lanes throughout the city.
Fort Worth Bike Share bicycles were designed to fit riders of a variety of heights and sizes. Each bike seat can be adjusted for height using the black/silver lever below the seat. The seat post also has numbers, so you can remember your height setting for future trips.
While no form of transportation is risk-free, bike share has been designed with safety in mind. These upright, cruiser-style bikes are built to be both durable and comfortable. Each bike has a bell, self-powered LED lights on the front basket and in the rear of the bike, and several reflectors to make sure it is easily seen by other people driving, walking or riding. When riding Fort Worth Bike Share, riders should stay alert to your surroundings - don’t ride with headphones. We strongly encourage all riders to wear a helmet to reduce the risk of head injury in the event of a crash."
Since Free First Fri-Yay kicked off in 2020, 678 free full-day passes have been claimed. April 2021 was the program’s busiest month with more than 60 free bike rentals in one day.
Now there’s more reason than ever to get rolling. “In recent months, Fort Worth has added new bike lanes and made other improvements that benefit cyclists,” said Jennifer Grissom, executive director of Fort Worth Bike Sharing. “Plus, we just opened a new Fort Worth Bike Sharing station across from Dickies Arena, making it easier to enjoy all the Cultural District has to offer. More than a dozen other new stations are in the works.”
