The Velorution Hits DC
Washington DC begins a bike sharing program today in a first for the US. Similar to successful programs in Europe (especially Paris), bikes will be available at kiosks placed around the city. The bikes can replace a longer walk or a cab ride for people on the move.
Read the article for all the details, but kudos to DC for making a progressive idea a reality. Not easy to do these days! Some day I'm sure bike sharing will be a standard part of urban life. It makes a ton of sense & should inspire many people to do more riding. A virtuous cycle, no doubt.
