I arrived in Berlin the other day just on holiday. Walking to my friends work and all these bikers pass me by (like almost every major street in the downtown area has a bike path). After about 20min of walking, I think to myself 'man walking sux... i wish i had a bike')
Then on the next block I see this bike just sitting by itself not really locked to anything. I don't take too much notice
Then on the next block, two more.
Finally, a bit farther down the road, theres a huge cluster of them. I had my PDA with me so I lookup the website written on the side and find this:
Not the greatest bikes, but really cool idea. Basically bikes strewn all around the city that you can pickup and start riding. Too expensive to really make sense yet, but the idea is really sound.
Love that german ingenuity.
