The partnership between Blue Zones Project and Fort Worth Bike Sharing will continue to roll throughout 2021, providing free BCycle rides on the first Friday of every month throughout the year.

Called “Free First Fri-Yay,” it offers area residents a free full-day Bike Sharing Day Pass once a month. Riders can access the free pass by using promotion code 92020 at any Bike Sharing kiosk or promo code 92020APP on the Bike Sharing app.

  • Jan. 1
  • Feb. 5

In its first year, more than 250 area residents took advantage of the free rides, even during a time of lockdowns and social distancing.

“This has been a great partnership with Blue Zones Project, enabling hundreds of residents to experience Fort Worth on a BCycle while getting a bit of exercise,” said Jennifer Grissom, executive director of Fort Worth Bike Sharing.

Matt Dufrene, vice president of Blue Zones Project Fort Worth/North Texas Healthy Communities, said: “Not only is it a fun and convenient way to get around town, but it supports natural movement, family time and a way to be socially connected while physically distant." 

There are 15 BCycle stations in Downtown! Check them out here.
