Membership in the program reached 646 leading to 1248 trips taken.
The total time riders traveled was 202,807 minutes or 3380 hours.
By Zagster’s calculations the bike riding offset 33,801 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.
The breakdown of riders was 47.54 percent male and 52.46 percent female.
By age the largest group of riders was between 18 and 27 years with 32.1 percent.

Overall there were 1215 rentals by all member types with 64.9 percent using the hourly plan and 35.1 percent from annual memberships.
Not surprisingly, Saturday and then Sunday had the most rentals.
