We will be visiting NYC next June and would like to rent bikes and tour central park and any other biking paths in NYC. Any advice as far as renting bikes, safe paths, etc. thank you

Bloomberg, He’s squeezed out cars in favor of floral planters, OK’d “pop-up” cafes and bike lanes, but the pedaler-in-chief saved the crown jewel of changes for last — a public-rental program deploying 10,000 bicycles to 600 sidewalk kiosks. The initiative, which will be the third-largest in the world, behind Paris and Hangzhou, China, will be tested this summer, and rolled out in 2012. Critics say it’s community sentiment be damned.

Denver has had a bike program for over a year and I love seeing the pretty red bikes zipping around. []

[] I love that I can walk across from my office, grab a bike and ride for 30 minutes free at lunch.

Soon those bike lanes will be more crowded than the subways.

Some 10,000 more bikes will flood the streets next summer, thanks to a new cycle-sharing program, which was unveiled by officials yesterday.

The 40-pound bikes will be housed in 600 cycling stations distributed every few blocks south of 79th Street in Manhattan and in certain parts of Brooklyn.

The stations will be solar-powered, providing electricity to the credit-card machines and bike locks.

Don't bike in NYC - you may be run over by a crazy pakistani taxi driver. There are lots of those idiots here.
