What do you think of GPS-enabled, calorie-tracking, specially-designed Trek bikes to use whenever you want? Oh, and you can check your carbon offset too. All this is courtesy of  B-cycle, America’s first city-wide bike-sharing service. Only, Brooklyn doesn’t have this Zipcar of bikes—Denver’s the lone debut city—and we never will, unless we show B-cycle that we want it most. Thrillist put out the call yesterday for cities around the country to vote to become the next place B-cycle sets up shop. All it takes is entering a Zip code (any one in Brooklyn will do), and we’ll start racking up the points. The current number to beat: 2,389 in Austin, Texas. Guys, that’s like one city block. Let’s go get this thing.
