Access to bicycles for short trips inside the city is great for your health, your budget and the environment. However, finding the nearest station available for picking up or returning a bike can quickly turn into a frustrating experience. For those who don’t have bcycl in their pocket, that is.

bcycl for Windows Phone finds the closest available bike or empty slot on a smoothly zoomable map, showing station clusters and individual stations, with availability information updated in real time.

The latest update (1.1) brings station search and support for more cities, including:

– Montreal (Bixi)
– Mineapolis (Nice Ride)
– Washington (Capital Bikeshare)
– Toronto (Bixi)
– London (Barclays Cycle Hire aka Boris bikes)

You can try the app for free (limited to one nearby station) or purchase the full version for 99 cents only.
