Second CitiBike ride

  • I took my second ride today, this time checking in at the station at 54th and 8th Ave.
  • I knew how to do it this time, so I was out of there in no time.
  • I forgot to adjust the seat. Stopped a few blocks into the ride and did so.
  • However, the seat didn't stay up. I had to stop every few blocks to yank it back up.
  • Eventually I got tired of this and just left it low. I felt like an adult riding a kid's bike.
  • I guess that's the big question, how well will the system hold up against NYC wear and tear. Everything is still bright and shiny, but eventually it's going to be like everything else in NYC, functional but not too clean. ;-)
  • We love NY, yes we do. But...
  • The second ride was not as much fun as the first.
