FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: NASHVILLE BCYCLE TO CELEBRATE RETURN WITH E-BIKE RIDE ON JULY 28
Nashville BCycle to host inaugural ride on July 28 to celebrate the return of bike share to Nashville
Nashville, TN – July 22, 2021 – Nashvillians can celebrate the return of bike share with an inaugural e-bike ride on July 28. Hosted by Nashville BCycle and open to the public with RSVP on the Nashville BCycle website.
The event takes place outside the Nashville BCycle office at 206 Anne Dallas Dudley Blvd in Nashville at 12:00 pm on July 28th. Nashvillians are encouraged to join the celebration, which will include remarks by Walk-Bike Nashville and Council Member Freddie O’Connell and a short e-bike ride near the Capitol for all attendees.
In April, BCycle LLC and the Nashville Downtown Partnership announced the return of bike share to the city of Nashville with an upgraded, all-electric bike fleet. Nashville BCycle closed in Spring 2020 due to COVID-19 and now returns thanks to a new partnership between BCycle LLC and the Nashville Downtown Partnership.
“This new fleet of pedal-assist bikes will make it even better to visit Nashville’s businesses, enjoy some outdoor exercise or ease into a no-sweat commute with increased mobility in and around our city,” said Tom Turner, President and CEO of the Nashville Downtown Partnership. “For downtown, I think we may see more employers and employees think critically about last-mile mobility solutions, and e-bikes are another tool in the toolbox to make that a realistic option.”
Wednesday’s event precedes the soft launch of Nashville BCycle at a limited number of stations. Before Nashville BCycle reopens, riders can renew their previous memberships in the BCycle mobile app or online at nashville.bcycle.com. Riders can choose from a number of available pass types for riding to fit their routine and riding needs.
Nashville BCycle, under the management of BCycle LLC, will continue to operate in partnership with the Nashville Downtown Partnership, the nonprofit management association that has managed bike share in Nashville since 2012.

Headquartered in Waterloo, WI, BCycle LLC develops and delivers best-in-class bike share systems and is committed to providing an environmentally sustainable transportation alternative for cities. BCycle believes that bike share is the bicycle’s role in public transit and is on a mission to change the world by getting more people on bikes. BCycle, a fully owned subsidiary of Trek Bicycle, partners with organizations across the country to deliver community-based bike share. For more information, visit bcycle.com.
