Red Bike turns one today and is thanking the community for its support by offering $1 day passes all day long in celebration of its birthday. 

The discounted day pass can be purchased at the kiosk using promo code: 91515 (Tuesday's date). 

Riders are still required to check the bike in every 60 minutes to avoid overage fees of $4 per additional 30 minutes.  The overage fees encourage folks to check the bike in when they are not using it to ensure that there are always bikes available for other to ride.  Day passes are normally $8.

A Red Bike representative said they hope the $1 passes encourages lots of people to give Red Bike a try whether for the first time, or the first time in a while. 

With so many people riding for $1, there are likely to be traffic jams at certain popular stations.  Riders are advised to use the mobile phone app “B-cycle Now” to check for dock availability at stations.

After a long day of bike riding, Red Bike is holding a birthday party at Taft’s Ale House tomorrow night at 6 pm. 

Tuesday also happens to be former President William Howard Taft’s 158 birthday. 

Taft’s Ale House is located on the corner of 15th and Race Street in Over-the-Rhine, between the Red Bike station at Washington Park and the station at 15th and Vine. 

Red Bike will be joined by key champions Mayor John Cranley, who provided significant capital funds to get Red Bike started, and Dr. Rick Lofgren, President and CEO of UC Health, the presenting sponsor of Red Bike.

"Red Bike is extremely thankful for the tremendous support the community has shown over the last year," stated the company. 

Red Bike has 50 bike share station throughout Downtown, Over-the-Rhine, West End, Uptown, Northside, Covington, Newport, and Bellevue.  More information and memberships are available at cincyredbike.org
