Post Number 100
I would like to thank readers of The Bike-sharing Blog for your continued interest. What started off as a whim in May 2007 with the launch of The Bike-sharing Blog, readership and features of The Blog itself have greatly expanded over this time. Now over 200 individuals each day make this blog their source for international bike-sharing information. I work to make The Bike-sharing Blog interesting, useful, and insightful and hope it has assisted with the cross-pollination of this crazy little concept on two wheels in its spread throughout the world.
In my on-going efforts to make The Bike-sharing Blog even better, I have created a new section especially for my readers from governments with the "Tender Examples" section on the bottom of the right column. In this section, I have uploaded tenders from localities around the world, including Brisbane, Chicago, New York, and Tel Aviv which should be useful to government officials in the writing of their own Request for Proposal for their own citizens and visitors to benefit from a bike-sharing program.
Now for the next 100 posts, I want to hear from you as to what you like about The Bike-sharing Blog and your ideas on making it even better.
If you don't have a bike-sharing program in your city yet, write to your local elected leaders and transportation department head. No other mode of public transit has ever been as economical, healthy, and environmentally friendly as bike-sharing and therefore every city around the world should have its own fleet of transit bikes.
