That’s the outrageous part of this. Its not whether or not fat people can ride the bikes. Its that the government is using freakin’ taxpayer money to run this boondoggle. Let me make a prediction: fat people riding won’t be much of an issue because these bikes will be stolen or destroyed within short order.
we should call them bloomycycles.
somebody is making a few crony dollars off of this joke.
The initial 30 bicycles placed into service for the Orange Bike Project were all stolen within a few weeks. A total of 80 bicycles were eventually used in the Orange Bike Project, all of which were either stolen or vandalised beyond repair. In one case, an Orange Bike Project bicycle was thrown in front of a freight train, in others, bikes were found with major frame damage consistent with deliberate vandalism. The program was terminated after only five months of operation.

You got that right.
