The pricing is clearly geared towards annual memberships vs. daily or weekly rentals. With tax I think I paid $103 for the annual membership. Compared to the $110/mo unlimited metrocard for the subway it's a bargain.

I rode the citibike over the Brooklyn Bridge into lower Manhattan today. Nice weather for a ride. First time on a bike in over 6 months and I felt it going over the bridge
