Bike Share hits SF

Another city joins the bike share revolution! This time its San Francisco. Here's the place to sign up: Bay Area Bike Share. It's day one and Ride the City's got the bike stations live on the map (see image below), so feel free to check out Ride the City - San Francisco (operating in all of the Bay Area) and compare it to the other bike routing tools available for your neighborhood.

For those new to Ride the City, our routing is based on Open Street Map, the publicly-owned map that's improved from crowdsourced data, like wikipedia. Open Street Map is part of the public domain so anyone who contributes to it is supporting a public, non-proprietary service, unlike the dominant, private mapping services. Here's a nice list of Open Street Map FAQ's put together by Mapquest.
