...looks like enough room, yes?

I really hope that

just as when crossing a street

bikesharers would take care

to not indiscriminately step out into traffic

without checking for oncoming cars

forget the bike all should just thank god or whoever you pray to that that Bloomberg got his city bike program before he left office..because just like the taxi of tomorrow, if citibike got rejected we would probably hear something like this from him... "Come January 1st, when I am out of office, I am going to destroy your fucking neighborhood"

Just a thought, but in other cities in which this cockamamie treehugging bike share program exists, are there 20 million metro residents? And i mean the democaracies, not communist china where there is no choice.

To me, this is socialism run amok. Some guy thinks he's a genius becuase he visited amsterdam, and soehow gets appointed to some bicylce board in new york and finds it his dut to i pose his stupid worldview on all city residents. With the taxes we pay they should give everyone a free bike and call it a day.

"Socialism run amok"/ really? Do you even know what socialism means? I bet you are a UN and Obama hater too. Get a life or better yet go for a bike ride and stop hating so much.
