The full system launch is not until August 30, but the city of West Hollywood soft-launched its bike-share system yesterday. WeHo Pedals now has dozens of bicycles available at four initial stations. Introductory annual memberships are just $69.

WeHo Pedals is operated by CycleHop, the same vendor that runs systems in Santa Monica (including Venice stations coming this month), Long Beach, Beverly Hills, and, coming soon, UCLA. The bikes are "smart bikes" meaning that the electronics are located on the bike itself, not the dock. Bikes can be locked up at designated docks, or at other locations within the service area. The system coverage area overlaps with neighboring Beverly Hills, so cyclists can pick up a bike in WeHo and leave it in Beverly Hills.

Nearly all of the bike-share stations are along Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood's central spine. The four stations currently available are:

    • West Hollywood City Hall, 8300 Santa Monica Boulevard
    • West Hollywood Park, 647 N. San Vicente Boulevard
    • Santa Monica Boulevard at N. Crescent Heights Boulevard
    • Santa Monica Boulevard between Holloway Drive and N. Olive Drive

Get all the fabulous details at WeHo Pedals website. More photos from yesterday's launch after the jump.
