Citi Bike hits its one year anniversary.

Launched last Memorial Day, the ride-share program has been helping New Yorkers and tourists alike pedal around the city.

There are several docks where you can rent the bikes in Manhattan below 61st Street and in Brooklyn.

Annual membership for the program costs $95, and daily passes cost just under $10.

The program has faced some financial problems with ridership slipping over the winter, but the blue bikes have pedaled on.

The chief executive of Alta, the company that runs the program, has said Citi Bike broke even during it's inaugural year.
