Rice University has eight Bcycle bike share stations on campus. These rental bikes are great for short trips around campus and longer rides around town, connecting students, staff, and visitors to a citywide network of Bcycle stations. Click the map above to zoom in on the Rice Bcycle sites, or click here for a map of all Houston Bcycle stations.
Rice students, employees and visitors can check out rental bikes using a credit card or the Bcycle smartphone app, then ride to and from any station in the citywide Bcycle network.
Single rides cost $1.25 to unlock a bike, plus 10 cents/minute for a pedal bike (20 cents/minute for e-bikes). Or, for better value, purchase a monthly membership for $19* and get unlimited 60-minute rides (with extra per-minute fees only for rides that go over an hour in duration).
*Even better value: Rice students and employees who sign up with a rice.edu email account receive a $5 discount on the monthly membership rate!
