    You see folks riding the bikes all over town.Take One And Go!-32.jpgAnd stopped all over town too.Take One And Go!-31.jpgIt is amazing how many folks you see out riding.Take One And Go!-30.jpgWhat we really find astound is how far out of town you see the bikes.Take One And Go!-33.jpgSince anything more than a 1/2 hour hop starts the hourly fee it can get quite expensive to take a long tour.

    What a great way for cities to add a means for exercise. They have bicycles set up in a version like that in Minneapolis. Oklahoma has a very very mini version in OKC
    never,never,never give up

    We don't do it for exercise (we get plenty), we do it for fun. Not to mention that it is a great way to run errands and go out to eat.

    Pick up a bike+ride it to where ever you want+drop it off at a station = worry free dining, shopping or whatever. If someone steals it=not our problem. That is a real bonus in a city.
