Are your New Year’s resolutions ready? You might want to consider adding “riding a bike more” to that list, and Healthy Ride has a nice incentive for you.
Pittsburgh’s favorite (and only) bike share system is offering annual memberships for the first time. Subscribers can now pay a one-time fee and ride all year at a discounted rate. Continuing now until March 1, members can purchase an unlimited 30-minute ride pass for $120 and an unlimited 60-minute ride pass for $200 that are good for the entire year. (This works out to a 16 percent discount compared to buying monthly passes).

Enjoy unlimited rides on these bikes all-year-round for a discounted rate thanks to Healthy Ride.
“While we always offer a monthly option that can be used year-round, this limited-time and discounted annual membership is an excellent option for those who want to ride all year without making a monthly payment,” says Pittsburgh Bike Share director David White in a press release. “We hope Pittsburghers in all neighborhoods continue to incorporate biking into their daily commutes.”
Annual passes are good for 12 months after you purchase them (for more information, click here
). So if you buy one on Feb. 16, 2016, it will be good until Feb. 16, 2017. After March 1 of 2016, annual passes will not be available until possibly closer to the beginning of 2017, so commit to that “bike more” resolution early.
