Yesterday I was riding in Prospect Park on my roadie, but I was noticing how many people were on Citibikes now that they've expanded down that way. I'll have to try doing the loop on one, especially the hill. Maybe I'll do it while my wife is running in the park, training for the Marathon, and see who can do it faster. Or maybe to make it a little fairer, race against one of the faster runners in her group.
With the further expansion in Manhattan I took a bike from the Lincoln Center Area to E97th. I rode through Central Park and my ascent up cat hill was slow but doable. What didn't help was the fact that it was one of the hottest most humid days of the year. I arrived soaked in sweat.
FWIW I have seen kids doing wheelies on citibikes!
