A quick explanation about a picture that I took and is now on the Boston Magazine website (about how not to use Hubway). Basically, I was walking to Boloco (probably) after a trip on Hubway and saw a shared bike propped outside a tobacconist (yeah, there's a tobacconist, although he did not sell scratched records). It looked kind of silly left all alone, although right behind me, the photographer, there was a guy—the friend of the Hubwayer in question—standing with his bike and watching over. And about 12 seconds after I snapped this picture, the rider came out and grabbed the bike. So it was never in any real danger.
Of course … there is a Hubway station on the same block.
