WeHo Pedals Turns 2!!

We’re turning 2 on August 30th… big kids now! No more crawling around for us. We’ve removed our training wheels and are off and pedaling with our friends from Breeze Bike Share,  Beverly Hills Bike Share, and Bruin Bike Share. We call it Bike Share Connect and now we are stronger than ever. One membership gives access to all four systems!

Larger system area, freedom to choose any bike, same great price!

We’d like to share the birthday love with you by adding $2 riding credit to your account on August 30th, 2018 which may be used for any memberships, ride times, or fees. If you’re a member, the $$ will be added to your account on August 30th. THANKS FOR CELEBRATING WITH US and take matters into your own legs!

 

 

May Is National Bike Month


May is National Bike Month and the City of West Hollywood is celebrating the benefits of bicycling by encouraging community members to leave their cars at home and hop on a bicycle to get to work or to grab a bite to eat across town.

The City of West Hollywood joins communities from coast to coast to showcase the many benefits of biking. Organized by the League of American Bicyclists, National Bike Month helps to promote interest in healthy, sustainable, and economic transportation options; from 2000 to 2013, the number of bicycle commuters in the United States grew by more than 62 percent. Whether community members bike to work or school; ride to save money or time; pump those pedals to maintain health and respect the environment; or simply to explore local community, National Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle.

New WeHo Pedals members will receive 20-percent off of new Annual Memberships in May when signing-up online at www.wehopedals.com and entering the BIKEMONTH2018 promo code. The annual membership gets users 90 minutes of ride time for 365 days across four bike share systems. The promo code will be valid through Thursday, May 31, 2018.

The City of West Hollywood will host its monthly midday WeHo Pedals Bike Share Basics class on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the WeHo Pedals Bike Share Hub located on Santa Monica Boulevard and N. Olive Drive. The class is a fun, hands-on experience that aims to educate and encourage community members to use the bike share system as informed, safe, and lawful cyclists. In this 90-minute workshop, participants will learn how to unlock, adjust, and use all of the features of a WeHo Pedals Bike Share bike while practicing safe riding skills. The workshop will include a group ride on WeHo Pedals bikes. Participation in the class is free and space is limited to 15 participants. Walk-up participants cannot be accommodated; advance reservations are required. All participants will receive a free helmet.

Something Big is Coming….

We’ve been hard at work creating a new regional bike share network for you to use — Bike Share Connect.  Bike Share Connect will soon integrate the WeHo Pedals, Breeze Bike Share, Beverly Hills Bike Share, and Bruin Bike Share systems. This means more places to pedal! You’ll be able to use your existing WeHo Pedals account to access any Social Bicycles bike you find in the LA area. Just look for the Bike Share Connect logo that will be on the fender of bikes available to the Bike Share Connect Network.

What does this mean to you?

  • No Out of System Area fees within the whole Bike Share Connect system area.
  • You can use your account whether you’re in West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Westwood/UCLA, or Santa Monica (that means 830 bikes for you to use!)
  • No changes to your payment plan, rate, and renewal date

And don’t forget that our #NewYearNewYou promotion is still going on, which means buying an Annual Membership (on sale until January 31) is even more economical than usual! Save 20% now and have access to the Bike Share Connect network when we launch. Promo Code HELLO2018 expires at midnight January 31.

New Year, New YOU! Save 20% on Annual Memberships
