For your viewing, here's the animation produced by Transport for London explaining how to use Barclays Cycle Hire -- the 570-station bike-share system that launched about two years ago. There's a lot to cover in a little more than four minutes: when bike-share is useful, how to get a membership, what not to do with your bike, how to handle a bike that needs repair, and so forth.

In Los Angeles, we've already seen criticism of Bike Nation and their commitment to bringing a large, city-wide bike share system online. We could probably use a video like this before Bike Nation launches in December.

(Note: Ben did all the research and most of the writing. Damien changed the story so it was an easier fit in Los Angeles.)
