  • I’m Peculiar. I walk around with a harmonica in my bag for when I want to sing a random song and need to find the correct note. I’m serious.

For my brothers’ birthday weekend we embarked on an unplanned adventure across New York City using CitiBikes. Due to their 30-minute check-in rule, we were required to find a CitiBike station to temporarily dock our bikes every thirty minutes, or we’d be punished with overage fees of approximately a billion US dollars per minute. As a result, this made us feel as if we were in a video game where we’d lose one of our “lives” if we didn’t arrive at each checkpoint in time. By the end of this CitiBiking video game, we were thoroughly exhausted from riding from midtown Manhattan, through Little Italy, up Chinatown, across the Brooklyn Bridge, through the DUMBO neighborhood, and then back to our starting point. After spending a day with a bike, I have solidified my love for effortless, sweatless, automobile transportation and will stick with cars as my primary mode of long-distance transport for the foreseeable future!

    I love citibiking! Wish the time limit was more than 30-mins though. This takes tourism to the next level! Now when people visit the city, they’re no longer confined to Times Square and Central Park. The whole city is up for grabs. I love this new concept! Love the photos too! Especially the one with the bike wheel!
