PEDALS TO THE METAL
Following the lead of NewRo and Yonkers, White Plains has also launched a bike-sharing program. Powered by ofo and LimeBike, the county seat has seen 300 bikes roll into its city limits. The dockless, GPS-powered, and 3G-enabled two-wheelers can be parked at any bike rack and will cost $1 per ride. In just a couple of months, the county has gone from no bike-share units to approximately 1,400.
Congrats to Westchesterites Lief Counter of Pelham and Daniel Van Starrenburg of Bedford Hills, who captured the top prize in two of the seven overall divisions of this year’s Newport Bermuda Race. Counter took the Double-Handed division in Yankee Girl by almost 8 minutes, while Van Starrenburg won the Super Yachts division in his 110’ Aurelius by 6 minutes.
