Have you noticed these colorful bikes around Saratoga this summer?
CDPHP Cycle! – the Capital District’s bike-share system—has grown exponentially in Saratoga Springs since last summer, now with 14 hubs and dozens of bikes. Especially during this month, when the weather is nice but the traffic can be ugly, using CDPHP Cycle! to get across town can save a lot of time and hassle. Plus, with strategic hub locations throughout the city, including Rail Road Run and the Spa State Park, it’s a great way to get to an event, or to stretch your legs and explore.
Just recently, CDPHP Cycle! introduced a twist: “unicorn bikes.” Featuring unique colors and designs, unicorns turn bike-sharing into a game of hide-and-seek, with each ride benefiting CDPHP The Foundation. Only 12 unicorn bikes have been distributed across the four cities in the system (Albany, Schenectady, and Troy)—if you find one, take an ~exclusive~ ride for a great cause!
The bikes are easy to use, with U-locks and a GPS-enabled key pad on every bike. Once you create an account, the app will give you all the information you need to find available bikes and open hubs (although you do not need to return the bike to a hub after each ride).
