Tomorrow, You Can Take Bike-Share for a Test Ride

Photosim: NYC DOT

For the next few weeks DOT and Alta Bike Share will be setting up bike-share demonstration kiosks where New Yorkers can see how it all works and try out the sturdy, three-speed bikes that will be available at 600 stations once the system is up and running.

The next demo is coming up tomorrow in DUMBO, from noon to 4 p.m., under the Manhattan Bridge archway. There are four more demos scheduled for the next month, with more undoubtedly to come after that. You can see the current demo schedule here.
