Citi Bike and cyclists celebrated a major milestone Sunday.

Riders from all across the city gathered at Prospect Park to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the bike share program.

The celebration included an award ceremony where Citi Bike honored its top male and female all-time riders and other all-star Citi Bike members.

The bike share program is in three different boroughs and averages 70,000 daily bike riders in the city.

Citi bike plans to bring 12,000 bikes to areas of Brooklyn and other boroughs that don't have access to the bike share program.
