Bike Nation Opens Shop in Anaheim

Created with flickr slideshow.
This Saturday, Bike Nation launched Southern California’s first bike share system in Anaheim. While no Streetsblog writer managed to attend, we’ll make it a little later this week to try out the bikes, kiosks and registration without Bike Nation staff there to help us out.  But one of our intrepid readers, Erik Griswold, did make the trip.  He reports that the opening was “sparesly attended,” at least when he was there at 11 a.m. Regardless of the size, Bike Nation is open in Anaheim.

His pictures are featured in the above slide show.

For more on the opening, check out the story on NBC 4.
