Man Blows By Pedestrian on Divisadero, Leaving Blue Blow-By Smoke in His Wake

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

He almost made it to the end of the block at this point, yet his exhaust still hangs in the air, visible:

Here’s Your Chance to Try BAY AREA BIKE SHARE for Free – FRIDAY FRIDAY FRIDAY, November 20th, 2015 – Get Your Code Now

Friday, November 13th, 2015

The problem with this

. and sponsor Bay Area Bike Share’s first-ever Free Ride Day on 11/20! Get your ride code today

…is that November 20th, 2015 isn’t exactly going to be Free Ride Day, it’s going to be more like Free Ride for a Half-Hour Day.

And if you think I’m quibbling, check out how our tourists have reacted to us subsidizing this program for them:

AN ABYSMAL TWO-STAR RATING ON YELP

(And that’s even with the requisite number of 5-star shill reviews – some, perhaps, with a profit motive…)

And some private company will end up making millions off of this program what costs us tens of millions of dollars, oh well. And this is the same company what profits handsomely when people, including lots of tourists from all over the world with perhaps not the best handle on English, interpret phrases like FREE RIDE DAY as a FREE RIDE DAY or RIDE ALL DAY FOR $9 as RIDE ALL DAY FOR $9, but then end up getting charged $68.50 or whatever instead of the $9.

(My problem is that the minimum charge to pedal one of these expensive yet heavy rides around the block just to see what it’s like is $9.)

But look what’s coming up:

“On Friday, November 20, riders can enjoy free Bay Area Bike Share trips, courtesy of Target and Instacart!

Taking advantage of the promotion is easy. Register here (or at right) to receive a free 24-hour pass code by email. Then, on Friday, November 20, use that code at any Bay Area Bike Share station. The 24-hour pass, typically $9, will cost nothing thanks to Target and Instacart.

A credit or debit card is required as usage fees still will apply to all trips over 30 minutes. Riders can choose to take multiple rides during the 24-hour period simply by going to the kiosk and selecting “Request a New Ride Code”.

Station locations and real-time bike and dock availability can be viewed at bayareabikeshare.com/stations or by downloading the free CycleFinder app for iPhone or Android devices.”

So Friday will be your chance to try things out.

Bon Courage.
