In 2020, BCycle saw an increase of 50,000 rides over the previous year.
The bike share says it reached its 1 millionth rider six months earlier than expected.
The numbers are continuing to increase, and BCycle is on track to see another 60,000 more rides this year with the addition of electric bikes.
