    NYC's bike share getting new investors

    I really hope this works out. Citibike is hugely popular, but locations are very limited. If they expand, I might join because there are many places in NYC where I simply will not lock a bike.

    I see people riding without hands on a crowded MUT. It's not safe. I can't do it, but I don't want to, so it's not a problem.
