In case you haven’t heard, Philadelphia is the place to be in 2015. With so much to see and do, all you need is a way to get there.
Enter Indego, the city’s new bike share system! Independence Blue Cross is proud to sponsor Indego, which gives residents, commuters, and visitors a convenient, affordable, and healthy new way to enjoy what the New York Times is calling our urban outdoor oasis.

With Indego, you can rent a bike, go for a ride, and return it to any station in the system. We’re offering Independence Blue Cross members a special discount to ride:

Enjoy the feeling of two-wheeling
Saving money is always a great incentive, but there are plenty of other reasons riding a bike is good for you — it’s a low-impact way to burn calories, it can help you meet new people, and research suggests commuting by bike makes us happier. All this, and it’s just plain fun!
Gear up to ride Indego by checking out these tips for safe riding. Whether you consider yourself a Tour de France contender, or the last bike you rode had a banana seat and handle-bar streamers, remember to wear a helmet and follow the rules of the road.
I’m looking forward to exploring historic Old City on an Indego bike this summer. Where will you ride Indego?
