Carol is a talent manager. Before signing up for Citi Bike she had not been on a bike in New York in many years. She joined largely because of her cross-town commute.

"I go from 44th and Lexington to 53rd and 8th. I normally take the subway -- two trains -- or I walk. Most of the time I walk. I've been getting used to riding with traffic, trying different routes, seeing which ones are faster. I was a little intimidated on the first day but I'm getting used to it. The bikes have definitely been drawing a lot of attention. My first day riding to work, a cop pulled me over. I thought I did something wrong; he just wanted to ask about the bikes."
