Who Needs Pedals?

I have jury duty this week (more on that later) and I needed to swing by my office before going to court So I grab a CitiBike, pretty much without looking, adjust the seat and hop on. My left foot is pushing air.

I look down, the bike is missing a pedal. Kind of a problem.

That’s the first bike maintenance issue I’ve hit. But it was easily resolved. I put the bike back in the rack, press the Repair button, and grab another bike.

I can’t imagine how much maintenance these bikes and the racks must need. It would be very interesting to see cost/revenue stats, but I’m sure the city won’t be providing them.

They do provide mileage stats. Over 790,000 miles traveled so far.
