Sneak Peek at CB’s New Tech

Over the last two months, our engineering team has worked tirelessly to develop the next generation of CrimsonBikes technology. In the very near future, we’ll be rolling out a brand-new website and upgrades to our station kiosks that will significantly improve the checkout process. Sure I could describe it, but pictures are just so much more fun.


CB 2.0 will include a lot of cool things that we have wanted to do for a while but have been limited by our previous site. Now, you’ll be able to rate bikes, refer friends, link up with other members on rides, and provide instant feedback. These features will not only help to help us to make CB a better program, they will give you points towards extended checkout times, free memberships, CB swag and biking accessories. Plus the new site is extremely mobile friendly and will be capable of managing one way trips (more on that in a few months).

Earth Day

It was a day of good weather and good food…which I did not get a chance to try (C’mon B.Good!). Although I did tell a bunch of excited folk and prefrosh about CrimsonBikes. They all seemed to be pretty surprised to know Harvard is home to the largest student-run bike share in the freaking world.

Most importantly, I schooled EAC Co-Chair Sachi Oshima in bean bag toss – which I forever refuse to call cornhole.


Innovation Showcase

As a cap to the i3 competiton, Harvard hosted the Innovation Shocase to put a lot of the many student projects in display. CB went into this with the intention of getting attention and creating buzz. How? Very simple by being almost obnoxiously conspicuos. Mission Accomplished!

Our presence was complemented by our videos playing on loop on a 27″ iMac and one of our prototype bikes on display on one of our bright red repair stands. Apparently we were the talk of the evening!
