The city’s bike share program will begin at the end of the month, according to a new report.

Citing administration sources, Crain reports that the program will begin Memorial Day weekend.

The city has not yet announced an official date for the launch, saying only it will begin this month.

The program's first phase will include more than 5,000 bikes at hundreds of stations in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

The bike share was delayed several times after planning to begin last summer.

Many are eagerly awaiting their chance to get around the city on two wheels, but others have criticized the roll-out of the program's equipment.
