    Visitors can now rent a bike and go for a ride in Griffith Park -- that is, if you don't mind riding on hills.

    The park in Los Angeles' Los Feliz neighborhood is the city's newest location where you can pick up a short-term bike rental, NBC4's media partner KPCC reports.

    The bicycles are rented from a dockless bike-share system, which means riders can pick up and drop off the bikes anywhere in the park's service area rather than returning them to a designated station. 

    The dockless bikes are operated by a Chinese company called ofo. To rent one, riders must download the app which helps them locate the nearest bike and then scan a barcode to unlock the wheels. 

    The cost? Ofo charges $1 for an hour of use.
