B-cycle installed at 1st & Broadway

B-cycle waited until construction of the station had begun on 17 April, three weeks after we noted that Denver Urbanism spilled the beans, to officially confirm the location of Baker's first B-cycle station; an email from B-cycle today also says another station has opened close to Baker at Bayaud & Pennsylvania

B-cycle coming to 1st & Broadway

when B-cycle recently announced addition of 31 new stations, Baker was mentioned, but details were lacking; we tried to pin them down, but B-cycle wrote back, "We have not yet announced all of the exact station locations, but if you are subscribed to our newsletter and social media, you will get the news as soon as it becomes public." …

no such details have emerged on @Denver_Bcycle, but the Denver Urbanism blog spilled the beans today: "The addition of a station on South Broadway at 1st Avenue, will be welcomed by the busy South Broadway commercial district." (nitpick: 1st Ave. intersects with North Broadway)
