commented on Pronto Cycle Share Launches in Two Months! Here's Where They Want to Put the Bike Stations
I can't wait to use them on my next visit. I had a hell of a time finding a bike rental place in November last time I was there. A couple weeks ago while attending a conference in Chicago, I made great use of Divvy bikes, their bikeshare. Had to tote along my own helmet, but having a 2.5 mile commute along the LSD bike path was well worth it!
Cincinnati gets ours this summer, and I'll buy an annual pass in my own city just to support it.

Loved them! Saw them while living in Charleston SC ca. 1995. Excellent live show. Charleston was a great place to see live music, after living in the upper Midwest for years, because people were so much shorter there. (More stereotypically polite, too).

I saw her phenomenal excerpt of this in (of course) the New Yorker. Utterly heartwrenching. At 48, I feel incredibly fortunate to still have my folks around and in good health. And yet, to know that this is what awaits is already painful. This is one of the rare benefits of being among the generation just after the boomers: the most talented of their lot, expressing what awaits me just around that NEXT corner.
