The next time you visit San Francisco, consider exploring the city by bicycle. May is National Bike Month, a time to get moving with two-wheeled transportation. Bicycling is a great way to exercise, to explore a city, and to save the environment. Not only does bicycling reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality, it also saves you money on gasoline and bus fares. Bike share programs are growing in popularity and their low rental fees are making bicycling a healthy and green option for exploring cities.

Even the automotive giant Ford realizes the benefits bicycling has for a community. The Ford GoBike is a bike share program serving San Francisco and the Bay Area. Thousands of public bikes are available for use and riders can choose from annual or monthly memberships, a day pass, or a single-use pass.

Multiple bike stations are located throughout the region. By downloading the Ford GoBike mobile app, riders can locate the nearest station and use the app to unlock a bike. The app also provides information about popular rides for beginners to the more experience that includes sightseeing opportunities. When ready to return the bike, riders simply use the app to find a station, dock the bike, and wait for a green light to confirm the bike is securely locked.

Going for a bicycle ride is a great way to stretch your legs after a long day of sitting behind your desk or in a meeting. The fresh air and easy mobility are far better than traffic jams and bus lines. Be sure to schedule time for this healthy and green activity the next time you visit San Francisco.
