The cost of your membership includes unlimited rides less than 30 minutes in duration, however, longer rides incur additional usage fees.

Ride joyfully!  Enjoy your trip to work or school, run an errand or grab a bite.  The pedaling possibilities are endless!  Always wear a helmet and be aware of your ride time.
