Saturday's forecasted 70-degree weather means you should probably walk somewhere, but Hailo isn't making it easy. 

The Taxi-app company is offering 70 free rides everytime the weather hits 70 degrees in April, and Saturday looks to be the first day they might have to own up to that.

The company will be monitoring the weather throughout the month of April, according to a press release, and when the average temperature hits 70-degrees, the deal kicks in. Hailo said it will tweet with the hashtag #70at70 once it warms up enough, along with a promo code. The first 70 people in Chicago to order a cab with Hailo will get their rides for free. 

Those who use the code will also be entered to win a $70 credit to Hailo. 

So far, the company has been in luck. According to Accuweather, April has yet to see a 70-degree day. Saturday's forecast calls for a high of 74 degrees, according to current forecasts.
