Citi Bike and The Brooklyn Bridge

Have you heard about the new bike share program in New York City? The concept is similar to many European cities, and DC, and the city has installed bike stations throughout much of mid and lower Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn. With a 24-hour pass you can ride the bikes for 30-minute intervals without additional charges, so as long as you get to a bike station, check-in, and get a new bike before your 30-minutes are up, you can pretty much ride around all day for roughly $10 per person. Eager to give it a try, this past weekend the boy and I decided to ride across the Brookyln Bridge, and overall we had a pretty pleasant experience. There are still a couple kinks that need working out, some of the stations in Brooklyn weren’t working and we sometimes had to get multiple codes for a new bike before one would actually work, but we rode all afternoon without much hassle or much expense. In a city where our apartment is far too small to store bikes, we can definitely see ourselves using these from time to time, now if only they would add stations above 59th street...
