How Bike Sharing in Albany Works

The CDPHP Cycle! bikes are smart and fitted with GPS software that makes it easy to track your rides, share with friends, keep count of calories burned, calculate the distance traveled, and even estimate how your ride contributed to a reduction in carbon dioxide emisssions.

To access a bike, simply download the app from, register, and find the nearest bike. If you prefer, you can also reserve a bike ahead of time on a computer, tablet, or smart phone. Release the lock with your app and you're ready to ride. Return the bike to any of the CDPHP Cycle! stations with an open spot.
