The best use of a CitiBike is a straight shot up or down the West Side highway bike path. That's a great ride on a sunny day, even on a slow bike whose chain can't decide between second and third gears. Cross town isn't as pleasant.

I realize how often I've held onto pains that other people inflicted on me for days, weeks, even years.

I support more bike lanes, better bike infrastructure, and all that comes with considering bikes in urban and suburban streets, and I have voted for and financially supported campaigns to do just that.
