Cities to Cycle In!

10,000 bikes at 600 stations are hitting New York City as part of a national, government sponsored bike sharing program!

9 cities already have the program, called Capital Bikeshare, and 7 more are gearing up for it.

Pick up a bike at one location, drop it off at another. Riders can join Capital Bikeshare for 24 hours, 3 days, 30 days, or a year, and enjoy access to the fleet of bikes 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

See Ray LaHood, the United States Secretary of Transportation, going to work on one of these, saying we "need transportation alternatives!"

Amen to that!
