NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Nashville's new bike share program is up and running just in time for spring weather.

Mayor Karl Dean and other city leaders tried out a few bikes and they want Nashville residents to do the same.

The program is called B-cycle and it's a fee based bike share program.

The idea is designed for several purposes.

Some of the purposes include those who have short commutes and don't want to drive or people that just want to run a couple of errands but don't want to lose their parking space.

According to the Nashville B-cycle Web site, the program "tracks mileage and calories burned, as well as the carbon offset of each trip. With these measures Nashville B-cycle will demonstrate the health and environmental benefits of bike-sharing."
