Bike-sharing in Denver on the grand scale!

The article says the new citywide bike-sharing scheme, called B-Cycle, here in Denver is the grandest in the US. We're seeing B-Cycle stations dotting the cityscape now. I'm not sure if the system is operating at this time, but it's easy enough to find out. I'll check and let you know.

Well, I've been to the site and I'm still not sure. Maybe some of the stations are operating. Fees seem reasonable, the bikes are Trek urban models with front baskets and generator hubs. Jeez, team, I hope this works!

Historically bike sharing programs have failed due to vandalism, theft and neglect. Not a bad idea, but owning and maintaining a functional bike can be inexpensive too.
