Some people have said that by having these bike sharing businesses pop up all over the U.S. we are taking away the whole essence of what the bicycle has evolved to be. Fun.  That we have made the bicycle become a part of public transit.

” it doesn’t leave from precisely where you are and doesn’t arrive at exactly where you want to be. Unless you work as a bicycle rack attendant, the very point of the bicycle is somewhat defeated.”  – James May, best known for his car loving contributions to BBC’s Top Gear

Hogwash I say. If we can get more bikes on the road and less cars and people are enjoying themselves while doing this then it’s a win win.
