I was teasing Ada in July about the extensive bike lanes built all over the city but there were few bikes . Well , it’s good to plan for the future . But not many bikes so far .
Then , one day , hundreds of green bikes appeared out of nowhere , like mushrooms suddenly sprouted in the forest . Oh ! O.K. , that’s the plan . City ( Szczecin, Poland ) residents can register to use the bikes , put 20 zloty down ( about $6. 60 ) and go . There are stations all over the city where the bikes can be got and returned . People are beginning to use them , too . The city is changing .
