Philadelphia has been gearing up for a bike share for awhile, but today taking a spin around the city just got a whole lot easier.

The city launched its new bike share program, Indego, today.

The Inde part of the name refers to its sponsor, Independence Blue Cross.

Mayor Michael Nutter was among those to strap on a helmet and go for a test ride today.

700 bikes are now available at 60 docking stations across Philadelphia.

Indego expects to expand to 2,000 bikes at 180 stations.

You can pay per trip or sign up for a 30-day or annual membership, each with its own pricing structure.

Customer service can be reached at (844)4-indego
