We Cycling!

I just met with MIT alumna Alison Cohen, founder and CEO of the brand new BlooBike bicycle sharing organization. Very exciting the progress she's made in just a few short months with this new venture. Ali reminded me of Robin Chase, another MIT alumna, and her entrepreneurial ventures Zipcar and more recently GoLoco.org. Robin has been rather skeptical of bike-sharing. Until recently, that is, because as Robin writes on her blog, after visiting Paris and seeing Velib, she "eats humble pie" and is now a supporter! In Success of Paris bike-sharing, Robin shares her core experience. Details of the Velib deal and operations is self-evident. Finally Robin speculates Where will bike-sharing work in other cities, etc.
