(That’s a really funny typo, I’m gonna leave it). Anywho, I think the problem is I don’t REALLLLY desire to ride a bike on the crazy streets of Manhattan but I also don’t want to be left out of the festivities of my friends’ bike gang (term ‘gang’ used really loosely here as it currently consists of 2 corporate business men who don lots of J.Crew). So a big heartfelt ‘thank you’ to Citi-Bike for solving this nearly decade old dilemma for me! Can’t wait/partially terrified to try it out!
