On Sunday, Citi Bike opened access beyond annual members to anyone who walks up to a station with a credit card.  To celebrate, a fun event in Union Square Park introduced the program with free bicycle helmets, ice cream, and hot dogs.  Membership tents were available to sign up to the program and free daily passes were given away.  There was even a practice course where participants could take the new wheels for a spin and learn how to navigate pedestrians, dogs, illegally parked vehicles, and wayward cyclists who could endanger law-abiding cyclists.
