Just Add Yellow Bikes

A non-profit in Lexington, Kentucky, is offering unlimited use of 80
yellow bikes sprinkled around the city in exchange for a $10 annual
membership. This would be a brilliant way to encourage biking in
Philadelphia, and a fun adjunct to the proliferation of parallel
car-share programs like FlexCar and PhillyCarShare.

Just like with those services, you would use their website to locate
the bike nearest you, and then you would use an electronic key to
unlock it. Even better, because bikes don't consume gas, you can get
away with a flat annual membership instead of having to hassle with a
per-use fee.

BIke lovers in Philadelphia, let's make this happen! (But maybe pick
a different color than bright yellow!)
