New Yorkers can catch a glimpse of the rainbow-colored bikes not just on the city streets, but also along the Pride March parade route this Sunday (June 28th) down Fifth Avenue. As a thriving transit hub, Union Square continues to be one of the most used Citi Bike locations in the bicycle share system. Be sure to keep an eye out for these brightly colored bikes as they roll through the neighborhood!

Happy Pride!
