Bikes In The Storm

Written by Boston Biker on Nov 05

Bikes and hurricanes, who would have known they went together?

They are also important to the recovery, not just for transportation but for the recovery effort as well. The next time a super storm is bearing down on your city, add “bike tune-up” to your list of things to do before it hits.

NYC Is Jacking Our Bike Share Style!

Written by Boston Biker on Sep 14

Seems NYC is jelly of our bike share system, in typical “city that never sleeps” fashion they are going to cover up their shortcoming by going bigger and better with their bike share system.

Comprising roughly 600 stations with 10,000 bikes, the scheme will, according to two people briefed on the plans, stretch from the Upper East and Upper West sides down to the tip of Manhattan and over the bridges into Brownstone Brooklyn, reaching as far as Greenpoint and Crown Heights. “The whole point is it needs to be dense,” a city official told The Observer. “It needs to serve a lot of different trips in order to be viable.”

The city has selected Alta Bike Share of Portland, Ore., to install and manage the system in a public-private partnership. The firm launched the popular Capital Bike Share in Washington, D.C. last year, which was expanded again this year, and this summer it opened the New Balance Hubway in Boston. With 110 and 61 stations respectively, both are considerably smaller than New York’s planned roll-out. Capital Bike Share is currently the largest such program in the country.

Either way, good to see Boston leading the way (or at least getting in before NYC).
