Why is bicycling so dangerous?
The problem is not bicycles per se, but rather the other motorists that share the New York roads with the bicyclists. Cars, trucks, and other vehicles on the road are significantly bigger and more powerful than bicycles. Additionally, bicyclists are not always visible to drivers. As such, bicyclists are at a significantly higher risk and danger when involved in an accident with a motor vehicle.
What is the Citi Bike Share Program?
Citi Bike is a bike share program available throughout the different boroughs of New York City that provides an easy, affordable option for short, quick trips. You have an option to buy a 24-hour Pass, a 7-Day Pass or an Annual Membership, which provides you with unlimited riding during your pass period.
