The city of Chicago is showing off a few of the bicycles that will be part of its bike-sharing program.
Several of the distinctive blue-colored bicycles will be ridden during Sunday's Bike the Drive event in which the city's lakefront roadway is closed to cars and trucks and turned over to cyclists. They will also be on display at the event's post-ride festival.

The bike-sharing program, known as Divvy, is set to begin later this spring. Over the next year it will expand to offer 4,000 bikes at 400 locations for use by residents and visitors.
A year-long membership costs $75. Users can also pay $7 for a 24-hour pass that allows for an unlimited number of trips of up to 30 minutes each.
