#Citibike riders way down Ocean Parkway bike path in Brooklyn

I had to do a double-take when I recognized the distinctive blue Citibike color and square logo on two bikes on Ocean Parkway approaching the Belt Parkway. Impossible!  I hailed the two riders because I was very sure Citibike didn't have a docking locations way down here which meant they were a good five miles from the nearest bike share station.and I guessed the overtime charges would be huge.  The two girls from Belgium knew where they were heading and asked about any station on their way.  I hated to tell them that they were over miles from the nearest one.  They took this all in stride but they were still all smiles. Took some photos and they continued on to the beach but soon saw them again on their way back and they waved goodbye.  I sure hope they beat the overtime charges.
First Citibike sighting as they approach the Brighton Beach neighborhood.

Friends from Belgium

Returning from the beach

See ya!
