European Support for Bicycles Promotes Sharing of the Wheels

BARCELONA, Spain — In increasingly green-conscious Europe, there are said to be only two kinds of mayors: those who have a bicycle-sharing program and those who want one.

Over the last several years, the programs have sprung up and taken off in dozens of cities, on a scale no one had thought possible and in places where bicycling had never been more here

This is such a neat alternative form of public transportation. I liked this comment at the end of the article:
“The critical mass of bikes on the road has pacified traffic. Now, the street belongs to everybody and needs to be better shared. It has become a more convivial public space.'
It would be pretty great to live somewhere where you could say that.

You make a good point, but you used the word share and this can be confused with sharing or worse sharing the (bikes) wealth:)
