Chicago's Divvy bike sharing system is gearing up for its June release—the company released its final station map last night. Chicagoans dashing sweatily across the city for errands or just looking to take in the lakeshore breeze can pick up the cool blue two-wheelers at 75 different ports, the majority of stations located near downtown transit hubs and tourist hotspots like Millenium Park and Navy Pier. 

The system will go live in three phases, the first starting mid-June. Phase 1 turf covers the area between Fullerton and Cermak, with one lonely pick-up station found on Diversey and Halsted, but expansion is soon to come. So far, it looks like Union Station has the largest planned station, with 35 docks. But big locations along Michigan Avenue and Jackson Boulevard are yet to be decided.

If you're looking to sign up, registration starts today at noon. The first 4,000 registrants will receive "founding" memberships—the "Pedal" for $75 and "Gear" for $125 (the gear membership gets you five 24-hour passes and a Divvy t-shirt, among other perks, according to Streetsblog).
