WE-cycle: connecting people to place with community-supported bikeshare.
A 501(c)(3) not for profit organization, WE-cycle is dedicated to serving the Roaring Fork Valley with bikeshare in the form of a public/private partnership.
WE-cycle opened in Aspen in 2013 as the first bikeshare in North America outside of a metropolitan area. In 2016, it added the Basalt system, providing service in Basalt, Willits, and El Jebel.
WE recognize that no initiative or individual alone can reach our ambitious community vision. And so, WE-cycle was born as a collective means of pedaling towards a connected, clean, bright, and healthy future!
The WE-cycle Team is an enthusiastic, aligned group of individuals passionately inspiring people to ride bikes and committed to making a difference in the community.
