Have you heard that the new bikeshare program in New York is making people sign a contract that they cannot use the bikes if they weigh more than 260 pounds? In otherwords, no fatties allowed.
If this makes you as angry as it makes us, let them know! Contact CitiBank, the major sponsors of the program, and tell them it’s not acceptable. Contact the NY Departement of Transportation, and tell them it’s not acceptable. Tell Mayor Bloomburg that everyone deserves to ride! Let’s rally and make sure bikes are available for all!
Bikeshares are about making exercising and commuting available for everybody, not just skinny bodies!
