Bike sharing

Some bike-share schemes work brilliantly, and others fail miserably.

London’s has been a great success, as has New York’s. However, there are plenty that have faltered spectacularly. Why is that?

The pic above is from China’s “Bicycle Graveyard” – the result of a bike share scheme that went badly wrong due to an unfortunately unforeseen combination of factors (isn’t that always the way). Great pic, but a very sad reality.
