Huge fan of citibikes
In spite of the nasty corporate connection to megabank Citigroup, I’m a huge of the new bike share program in downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn. I got my annual membership for $95 last week and activated it online and I already used it three times yesterday even though it was raining the whole time.
It helps that I work on 21st street near 6th avenue, which is one of the 300 stations so far set up with bikes. I biked downtown along Broadway to NYU to have lunch with Johan, and since we’d walked along Bleecker Street for some distance, I grabbed a bike from a different station on the way up along 6th.
Then later in the day I was meeting someone at Bryant Park so I biked up there, getting ridiculously wet but being super efficient. Now you know where my priorities are.
Here’s the map I’ve been staring at for the past week. It’s interactive, but just to give you an idea I captured a screenshot:
Friday I’m meeting my buddy Kiri near her work in downtown Brooklyn for lunch. Yeah!!
Sign up today, people!
