Wednesday, June 3. It’s a week now. I’ll admit, I’ve always supported bike share in principle. But I never thought it would be for me. I’ve changed my mind. I actually think Citi Bike is going to become a feature in my life. Every day, I’ve thought of new ways it’s useful. And I like that I feel excited every time I use it.

Are there glitches one week in? Sure. I’ve heard some online chatter. But guess what? A hundred years later, the subway has glitches too. Citi Bike will only improve.
