SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A San Francisco bicycle shop has implemented the city's first bike-share program.
The plan at Bike and Roll in the city's North Beach neighborhood is modeled after car-share programs that allow people to get access
to vehicles for a monthly fee.
The main program costs individuals $25 a month and families $35. Members can borrow a tricycle or children's learner's bike for just
over an hour.
The program is touted by Gary Fisher, who is known as one of the founding fathers of mountain biking. He now runs a bike design company and built the tricycles being offered by Bike and Roll.
