Bike-sharing finally comes to NYCClarence, our friend from Streetfilms, shot some footage at the Citibike bike-sharing debut in NYC. In his words, it was a "media frenzy", with more journalists present than at any other past bike event in the city. Mayor Bloomberg and NYC DOT commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan gave speeches, but the real star was the bike-sharing system. New York finally joins the rank of cities like Hangzhou, Paris, Montréal, etc.
Check out this great video:As you can see, even David Byrne was there (This is not my beautiful bike..?), so it had to be cool.
