Brooklyn and Manhattan’s bikers should be happier that ever: it’s been officially confirmed that Citibank will sponsor 10.000 bikes for 600 bike stations around NYC. Citibike is scheduled to launch summer 2012, envisioning to be used primarily for trips under 3 miles, as a 24/7 service. Bikers can pay for a membership fee (this one will cost US$ 95,00 per year) Usage fees apply for rides longer than 30 minutes. Here, we’ll remind a few bike sharing systems around the globe \o/
