    Please add the lead NYT Sunday Real Estate article on how “bicycling is beginning to influence some real estate decisions” by making subway-less neighborhoods attractive to utilitarian cyclists. The article really pushed the envelop in normalizing cycling and showing how deeply it is now woven into the urban fabric. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/25/realestate/bikes-change-your-brooklyn-apartment-hunt.html

  • Yup. The piece even allowed me to show off some of my NYC geography knowledge when my wife asked, “Where’s Wallabout?”

    i reflect my year with citibike being quite pleasant. yes, there were glitches of me being billed extra, fob key dying on me, but overall, its been a blast.

    i am a weekday user riding 4 miles one way. i often do hop offs to run errands like food shopping and the such.. i shortened my commute by eliminating train waiting times, plus i even did something most americans have a problem doing which is lose weight. im already slim and fit to begin with, but now my 6 pack (not beer) is showing.

    thank you citibike
