After lots of rain this summer, tomorrow’s weather is finally looking gorgeous! And if you want to spend it outdoors, here’s the perfect idea…
Citi is offering free, unlimited 30-minute Citi Bike rides on Saturday, July 24 to encourage New Yorkers to explore different NYC neighborhoods! Talk about perfect timing.
All you have to do is use the code “FREEPASS” for a Day Access Pass in the Citi Bike app. It’s good for classic bikes and “four localized ride guides highlighting routes and destinations to encourage exploration, while spotlighting local businesses and offering fun giveaways at four participating NYC Citibank branches.”
“We’re extremely proud of the way New Yorkers turned to Citi Bike for a safe form of transportation during the pandemic,” said Citi Head of Public Affairs Edward Skyler. “It became even more ingrained in the fabric of our City and now we’d like to help bring the fun back this summer with free rides. We encourage everyone to hop on a bike and pedal to the places they love in New York City – and explore some new spots along the way.”
Bicycling has always been a favorite among New Yorkers, but it became even more popular during the pandemic when outdoor activities were our only respite. Citi Bike said they reached a milestone of 100 million all-time rides last year and a record-breaking 123,284 trips taken on a single day on June 23. Last year alone, nearly 900,000 Citi Bike riders pedaled over 42.1 million miles.
Remember, all you have to do is enter the “FREEPASS” code tomorrow, July 24. If you’re looking for more details, check their website here!
