    Santa Barbara Public Library Adds BCycle Passes to Library of Things Collection

    Santa Barbara Public Library is thrilled to partner with Santa Barbara BCycle to expand access to their e-bike share program to the Santa Barbara community. With the addition of BCycle to the SBPL’s Library of Things collection, BCycle and presenting sponsor Bosch are hoping to expose more residents to the benefits of the electric bikes available in the community. Electric bikes are a convenient, safe, and sustainable form transportation. 

    Beginning May 26, library cardholders can check out a BCycle pass from the Central Library. The available BCycle passes can be borrowed for one week, and patrons can have unlimited one-hour rides for the duration of the checkout period. Additional passes will be available from Eastside Library and the Library on the Go van later this summer. 

    The BCycle Library Pass Program is made possible with support from Bosch. Bosch eBike systems power Santa Barbara BCycle’s growing fleet of 250 pedal-assist electric bikes, and now, are powering bike share access for more riders in the Santa Barbara community. 

    Santa Barbara Public Library and BCycle will host a kick-off event for the program for residents to learn more and ride e-bikes for free on Thursday, May 25, at East Beach next to Reunion Kitchen from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Stop by the Library on the Go to get a Library card, check out books, and take an BCycle e-bike for a test ride! Representatives from BCycle, Santa Barbara Public Library, and Bosch will be available to talk with residents and media about the impact they hope the bike share’s new access initiative will bring to the community.

    Visit the Santa Barbara Public Library online at SBPLibrary.org for information about programs and services. All library programs are free and open to the public.
