Like the bike? Share the bike! - 08/07/13
I am SO excited about the bike share program coming to Austin. When I was in NYC in June, I missed out on the CitiBike program because I hurt my neck. Figured navigating the streets of New York without full range of motion, might be a bad idea. I also missed out on a SoulCycle workout on that trip, don't get me started.
Anyway. Bike sharing arrives in Austin sometime in December. How fun will it be to go on a winter bike ride date around the city and not be a complete sweaty mess?!?
If you want to get a look at it yourself, they're having a pop-up at the last Blues On The Green tonight at Zilker Park at 7:30. BTW, they have lots of pop-ups popping up this month. Find more info here http://www.votebikeshareaustin.com/
On another note, for my cycling friends who actually own their own bike... Austin Police want you to register your personal bikes. More than 200 bikes have been stolen so far this year (it's only August) and half of those weren't registered with APD. Here's how you can do it http://www.austintexas.gov/bicycle
