world's biggest/baddest bikeshare is @hangzhou, china

Check out this great video below on hangzhou's bike share program.  Why do I love it?

2 main reasons:

1.  Some of the bikes have built-in seats for children!
2.  There is a multi-modal connection btw the bikes and buses--if you ride the bus first you get 90 minutes of free biking!  (I love multi-modalities.  It would be so great if there was synergy btw buses/subway, zipcar and capital bikeshare in DC--the same card for all and/or discounts to encourage use!)

check it out!
