Helsinki City Bikes R.I.P.

In the news this morning: the City of Helsinki has decided to drop the free city bike system because of cost cuts.

The bikes were obviously crap and the the system never worked too well, I guess, but given that the city is officially trying to increase cycling and improve the network of bike lanes etc., this sends a somewhat contradictory message out.

a crap bike is better than walking


DC here in the states has a Bike Sharing program that really needs to expand
