Welcome to the FC Bike Library! The FC Bike Library is a bike lending service for residents, students, and visitors to Fort Collins. Members may borrow a bike for as short as one hour or for as long 14 days. From tandems to tag-a-longs, cruisers to commuters, we've got a fleet of over 150 bicycles for guests to enjoy. The FC Bike Library also offers a variety of self-guided tours ranging from brewery tours and historic tours to an environmental learning tour along the scenic Cache La Poudre River Bike Trail. How is this all possible, you ask? Through direct funding from the City of Fort Collins, along with generous donations and grants from great folks who believe that bicycling will one day change the world. Come by and say hi, check out a bike, and experience the bliss of pedaling to your favorite Fort Collins park, restaurant, or local watering hole. We're always accepting donations, suggestions for future funding sources, and of course volunteers to help keep the doors open and the bikes rollin'. We'd love to hear from you. Open April through December. See our fleet and reserve your bike online. To health, happiness, and clean air! Viva la bicyclette!

extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, and fun. They provide you with a bike map of the area, recommend the best places to visit. The road are extremely safe, and known a huge bike town. With a half day rental you can visit more then half the city!

We borrowed our bikes at the University Inn location across from CSU. This location only has 4 bikes. The service was great. I would have given it 5-stars if bikes were in better condition. One of our bikes makes clonking noise while riding.

We did not want to pack our bikes on vacation, so we checked them out here. Excellent service. Well used but reasonable bikes. Rode some of the Cache la Poudre trail which is close to the bike library.

This was something someone told us to check out & it was totally worth it! Every city that has biking trails should have something like this! Fill out waiver before going... Makes process super fast! Get there early to get better bikes!
