The Baltimore Bike Share program celebrated its one month anniversary Monday.

Baltimore Bike Share released a graphic detailing the initiative's progress on Twitter.

Since October 28, the program has offered rides to over 2,000 users. There are 175 bikes in the city parked at 22 stations.

The Downtown Partnership said bike share members rode more than 8,000 miles and offset more than four tons of CO2.

A 45 minute ride costs cyclists $2. The majority of the 20 stations opened during the first round of launches are located in downtown Baltimore.

The goal is to open 50 total bike share locations by the spring of 2017.
