Kimberly Adams writes, "Boston already has an active cycling community. There are more than 38 miles of bike lanes in the city, which bikers use to run errands and to get to and from work."

"The new Hubway system allows Bostonians to pick up a bike from one of 61 bike stations around the city and drop it off at a different station when they are done. At least 40 of the stations opened Thursday, and the rest are scheduled to be up and running in the next week," she adds.

The Registered Annual membership rate is $85 with a $60 special introductory offer through July. Casual 3-Day and Casual 24-Hour prices are $12 and $5, respectively.
