What if Hoboken gets “bike sharing?”

Bike sharing – Prepare for clueless riders in Hoboken

As Ian Sacs bids farewell to Hoboken (who knows where the formerly unemployed pseudo-soccer player is going) – he is leaving us with another socialist potentially disrupting situation.

A bike-sharing pilot is coming to town over the next few weeks – with some envelope under the table company setting up a few stations around town with 20 or 30 bikes that people can rent/share.

The first thought I had was “great, people who don’t own bikes, have very little skill & awareness, will be cluttering our already ridiculously impossible streets with their amateur modes of transportation.”

Little did I know that the I Hate Bicyclists blog is back with another relevant (and funny) post today. It was about a bike sharing program in Washington D.C. that is pissing everyone off:

“I mean if there’s one thing worse than a bicyclist it’s a bicyclist who doesn’t even own his own f***ing bicycle.

When my commute gets ten minutes longer because my bus is stuck behind some dipsh*t on a bright red Bikeshare bike who can’t figure out why there are 800 drivers honking at him, I definitely start to feel like breaking some sh*t.”

I wouldn’t worry too much about that bike share program lasting long in Hoboken. At the rate bikes are stolen in this town, they’ll be cleaned out within 2 weeks.

Greaaaaaaaat. The first idiot to go down will sue the rental company and the town because they don’t rent helmets or elbow pads with the bikes. Mr. Eurotrip giving us one last lawsuit for the road.
