    Austin, TX City Employee Bikeshare Program

    The City of Austin recently purchased 15 bicycles for employees to use to commute between buildings for meetings, or at lunch. More information here:

    Which begs the question - did they buy 15 good locks to go with them? And will the renters bother to lock them properly, if at all?

    From what I've read they bought u-locks (not sure what brand) and helmets to go with each bike when it's checked out.

    I really hope the city employees take advantage of this opportunity. It's being used as a pilot for a city-wide bike sharing program.

    No doubt, one-size-fits-all helmets

    Probably. But hey, there's no helmet law in Texas, so they could probably just leave it behind at the office if they wanted to.
