Easy as Riding a Bike!
You'll find these bikes in bike racks around town. To rent one, just sign up for a CDPHP Cycle! membership through the website or mobile app and pick your plan.
To release your bike, enter your 6-digit account number and 4-digit PIN into the keypad on the back of the bike to unlock it.
Place the U-lock in the holster before you take off. To make a quick stop, press the “HOLD” button and lock the bike to a rack.
To end a ride, just lock your bike to any CDPHP Cycle! station. Or, lock it to any fixed, public object that does not block any public right of way.
