The largest bike share in the Americas, New York’s Citi Bike hit the Big Apple rolling only weeks ago. Its rows of shiny blue bikes dotting Manhattan below Central Park and downtown Brooklyn ought to be a perfect fit: New York has one of the weakest car cultures in the country and a mayor (albeit one on his way out) who has kick-started its transformation into a cycling city by adding miles upon miles of bike lanes. Nevertheless, the transformation is far from complete—these streets can be dangerous riding—and the system is limited by its geographic scope and steep price compared to worldwide counterparts.
