Hey WeHo Pedalers!
We’re excited to tell you about our progress regionally integrating the Westside Rides System.
We’re using the latest technology to develop a Westside Rides network — so you’ll be able to use your WeHo Pedals bike share membership whenever you are in Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, or at UCLA (launching fall 2017). Your ride time will carry over to whatever Westside Rides city you are riding in, and you’ll even be able to lock up in these other systems without paying the $20 Out of System fee!
We can’t wait to launch this state-of-the-art bike share network, bringing together the cities of Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and West Hollywood with better bike share for all.
Stay tuned for more status updates of this regional integration!
The City of West Hollywood’s bike share program, WeHo Pedals, is celebrating Pride. A limited number of WeHo Pedals bicycles have been converted into #PrideBike bicycles throughout the month of June. They have been decorated with rainbow hearts and carry the message #PrideBike to mark LGBTQ Pride festivities.
Community members are encouraged to keep an eye out for #PrideBike WeHo Pedals bicycles. Hop on and post a selfie with any #PrideBike using any major social media platform with the hashtag and automatically be entered for a chance to win an annual WeHo Pedals membership — #PrideBike is part scavenger hunt, part contest, part rainbow pride, and all fun.
The City of West Hollywood and Christopher Street West (CSW) will host the 2017 LA Pride Festival in at West Hollywood Park from Friday, June 9, 2017 through Sunday, June 11, 2017.

Employers – are you looking for a new way to recruit and retain the best talent? Want to encourage a healthy, active, fun work environment?
Offer your employees a WeHo Pedals bike share membership!
Introducing the Employee Benefits Program
WeHo Pedals now offers bulk pricing for employers who wish to provide the benefit of a year of bike share to their employees for as little as $19 per employee (save $80 per membership!).
How Does It Work?
You provide bike share to your employees, and we’ll give you steep discounts.
Simply choose a tier – All Staff or Partial Staff. Then we’ll provide you with promo codes for participating employees so that they can create an account. Your employees are responsible for all fees and charges accrued beyond their daily ride time; you’re simply gifting them with an Annual Membership.
The Benefits of Bike Share

Have questions about our bike share system?
Join us for an upcoming Bike Share Basics class!
Sponsored by CycleHop and presented by non-profit cycling program Sustainable Streets, WeHo Pedals Bike Share Basics classes are free, open to the public, and aimed at getting you road-ready. This fun, hands-on experience aims to educate and encourage community members to use the bike share system as informed, safe, and lawful cyclists. During the two-hour workshop, participants will learn how to unlock, adjust, and use all of the features of a WeHo Pedals bicycle while practicing safe riding skills.
All participants will receive a free helmet. Space is limited to maximum of 15 participants. Walk-Ups will not be accommodated.
For more information, and to reserve your place in the workshop, visit: https://www.flipcause.com/widget/event/OTQ3NQ==/3838
Our goal is to make bike share affordable for all members of our community. To make WeHo Pedals accessible for people in low-income households, we now offer reduced membership pricing for West Hollywood residents who are 18 or older and live in an income qualifying household (restrictions apply for college students). Qualified applicants will receive an annual membership at the discounted rate of $7/month. This discount provides those in low-income households with the opportunity to make manageable monthly payments rather than the larger, upfront cost associated with the Annual Plan.
For more information or to register for the Low Income Resident Plan, please contact:
