The man in charge of Bay Area Bike Share stations

Contest with a prize below so read through!

Say hello to Mike. This San Francisco native has worked at Capital Bikeshare in DC for the past three years and jumped at the chance to move back to the Bay Area when Alta won the bid for our local bike share.

His crew are mostly from other Alta operations around the United States. These Eastern timezone workers have been getting started at 6 AM for their installs in San Jose. They’re done by noon so they can spend the afternoon sipping drip brewed coffee at Philz at Paseo de San Antonio.

The final five stations will be installed beginning early Wednesday morning at the Children’s Discovery Museum Park, San Salvador @ 9th, 4th @ San Carlos, Paseo de San Antonio, Fountain Alley, and San Pedro Square.

Hmm, that’s six locations so I messed up on one of these.

The first person to leave a comment with links to photos for all five new sites installed on Wednesday gets a free day pass for BABS from me. Lady Fleur, employees of the city of San Jose bike program (I’m talking about you, John), and Alta Bike Share employees are not eligible.
