September 29, 2017 - HARRISBURG, Pa — You know the old saying 'it's like riding a bike?'

Well now it's just that easy to rent a bicycle and pedal around the Capital.

It's all part of the city's new bike sharing program spearheaded by Communities in Schools Pennsylvania.

The bikes can be found at 11 docking stations around the city. Some of the locations include uptown, midtown, downtown and City Island. 

You can either buy a $25 membership to ride the bikes for free up to two hours or you can pay as you go.

"I'm a cycler and have my own bike and I thought this would be a nice little way to get some exercise instead of walking," said Terry Miller, who works in Harrisburg. 

Friday was the soft launch of the ride sharing program, the official kickoff is set for Oct. 5.
