The flowers are starting to burst into colors in the Northern Hemisphere and leaves are turning into bright colors in the Southern Hemisphere all to celebrate the World-wide Bike-sharing Fleet reaching over 1,000,000 bicycles.
The Bike-sharing World Map, bikesharingmap.com, monitors the movement of automated public use bicycle systems all over the world. In its end of the year summary report for December 2014 (see here) fleet size was inching up to the one million mark.

Since the beginning of 2015, 18 new cities have launched programs and many are coming out of the winter months with bigger fleets. This has pushed the total of bicycles used in automated public systems to over one million!
The question now is, how to celebrate this achievement?
It is easy, use this momentous day to take a ride on one of these million bikes.
