Free B-cycle Memberships, Vote for RePurpose It Contest Entries

By Melanie Stewart

The RePurpose It Contest has some great projects to show off.  Your colleagues (and their kids) are incredibly talented and creative!  We hope looking at these entries will inspire you to look at items you have in your home a different way, helping you save money and reduce waste.  Voting is open, so make sure you check out all the entries here and vote here.

Don’t forget, you can earn prizes by participating (at your own time/pace) in our internet scavenger hunt.  It’s also not too late to join our Ecochallenge team!

Heartland Bike Share wants to thank everyone involved in healthcare for their extraordinary efforts of late, even if you aren’t a direct patient care provider.  To get a free annual membership (valued at $100):

  • Go to or the BCycle App,
  • Create a login
  • Purchase an annual membership using the promo code THXHEROES.
    1. This promo code is only good through 4/30/20
  • You will need to enter a credit card, even though you aren’t being charged. Once you click apply, your final payment will reflect $0.00.
  • You must use your UNMC/Nebraska Medicine/Clarkson College email address for the promo code to work.

Once you have signed up, you can check out a bike at any station with the BCycle App or at the kiosk. A live map of all stations & bike availability (including electric assist bicycles!) can be found on the website & the BCycle App, and the 42nd and Dewey campus has 6 stations.

Your membership is good for a year, but if you take a bike out now, don’t forget to maintain appropriate social distancing—at the kiosk and on the trails.  Heartland B-cycle is taking extra steps to disinfect high-touch surfaces and you can learn more here.

That said, bicycles can be returned to any station at any time.  All users should take their own precautions disinfecting bikes before you ride, wearing gloves, washing your hands, and not touching your face.  Don’t forget your helmet!
