The Ultimate Alternative Energy: You.

B-Cycle is a European style bike sharing system in Denver. CO

They have 500 bikes in 50 stations. "There when you need it, gone when you don't" is their tagline. You pull into a station, swipe your pass card and you're on your way.

What the bike advocates emphasize is that most trips we take in our cars are the local ones -- about 40% of all trips made in America each day are fewer than two miles long.

These are the trips that add up.

It's starting up the car that adds the most pollutants to the atmosphere. A 4 mile bike commute can keep 15 lbs. of pollutants out of the air we breathe.

A network of magic bikes located throughout Denver allows people to economically and conveniently avoid road congestion, parking problems, and reduce pollution.
