Short Description: 
Bike Sharing: Does it work? Is it as simple as it seems, or too good to be true?

Bike Sharing! Since December is the month of giving and receiving, we're looking at what it takes have a city with bike sharing facilities. Bike sharing systems allow paying members to pick up a bike from one station and return it to another close to their destination. Essentially, cycling without having to own a bike. We'll be joined by Jocelyn Gaudi, a main player in NYC's new system, Mitch Vars from Nice Ride of Minneaplois, and Ricky Rios of Caribbean Green Bikes in Puerto Rico to talk about different systems, different cities, the triumphs and pitfalls of the system and if bike sharing has a real future in Portland. This Wednesday @ 11am!
