I just learned about this today and signed up. We will see how that works out. I can't see it paying substantially for moving bikes just for the sake of doing it. You have to do about six trips from full station to empty station to earn $6. I do often go against traffic, so I'll be rewarded just for having a different schedule from typical people. I can't see the point of making an effort unless I make it an exercise program for myself: Ride from Station A to Station B, jog from Station B to Station A, repeat. I'd get a bit of pedaling and a bit of jogging.
