CitiBike, the new bike share system sponsored by CitiBank and Mastercard is due to launch in New York City in May 2013. The scheme plans to offer hundreds of stations filled with over 6,000 bikes placed all over the city that can be found using the Citibike app which also helps you plan your route and provides a curated list of top NYC restaurants, stores, museums and more for riders to discover.

Renters can purchase 24-hour access at $9.95 aimed at visitors or for spontaneous jaunts around town or for commuters and more regular riders lengthier passes are available for 7 days up to a year.

To ensure safety first, cycling activists from the teams at Bike NYC and Brooklyn Skillshare, as well as others, are now on a mission to educate novice riders and re-educate even advanced riders by teaching bike maintenance and revising techniques and rules for anyone who needs to revisit their road awareness skills. The teams are also offering classes on further biking groups and advocacies such as Recycle A Bicycle who are dedicated to the health, development, stewardship, and empowerment of NYC youth, and Transportation Alternatives whose aim is to reclaim the city’s streets for people by ensuring that every New Yorker has a safe space to walk and bike and easy access to public transportation.
