Bixi, Montreal’s breakthrough bike sharing technology which was chosen as the technology for the future Boston bike share, is coming to Boston this weekend. There will be a Bixi demonstration, with a solar-powered station, several bikes which you can try out, and many people to ask questions of. As the new Program Manager for Alta Bicycle Share, I will be around for both of the demos below.
Details for the Bixi demonstrations:
- During the TD Bank Mayor’s Cup Professional Bike Race on Saturday September 26 from 2PM to 7PM at 1 City Hall Plaza, Boston, MA 02108
- During the Hub on Wheels Bike Ride on Sunday September 27 from 9AM to 2PM at 1 City Hall Plaza, Boston, MA 02108
- I will be riding the Hub on Wheels Ride with several Bixi folks on Bixi Bikes, so if you are riding, please come find us!
This will be a great opportunity to see the bikes that will be all over Boston soon enough. and I just spent last week riding Bixi around Montreal and had a blast.
