How do you make exercise more exciting? Hop on a bike and take in our beautiful city! Bicycling is a fun and easy way to get active, especially when you know how to do it safely.
In an effort to encourage taking care while getting active, AARP and Zyp BikeShare are partnering to teach bike safety courses to AARP members in the Birmingham area. The first course on Saturday, September 23 will be held at the YMCA Youth Development Center from 9 to 10 a.m.
AARP members in attendance will receive their own bike helmet and, using a special promo code, can get $10 off an annual membership. Members can use Zyp bikes for up to 45 minutes at a time, as many times a day as they would like. After returning a bike to a Zyp station, undocking a new bike starts a fresh 45-minute countdown. Learn more about Zyp pass and membership options at zypbikeshare.com.
