Bike Me!

About a year ago, ATM (Milan's public transport system) finally introduced this system of rental bikes called "BikeMi." For those, who don't know Italian, the "Mi" is pronounced like "Me"--and so tickles the fancy of literate Italians knowing English--but is short for "Milano."

If you're interested, drop into one of the ATM information points scattered around town (there are two in the subway system under the Duomo) because the BikeMi handy dandy info kiosks work only for those already signed up to the program...pretty smart, huh?!

This shot was snapped in Piazza San Babila on Saturday, August 7, 2010, at about 2:40P.M.

This was really a good idea. Unfortunately, as a biker, I must say that going by bike in Milan is very dangerous; we should take example by the cycle tracks of the German cities.
