Jeffrey Tanenhaus quit his job, checked out a 45 lb. Citi Bike in Gramercy Park, and rode 2700 miles from Manhattan to Santa Monica. He kept it out slightly longer than Citi Bike usually intends and paid the maximum $1200 “overdue” fine.
“It’s a pretty sturdy bike.”
This wasn’t quite a spur of the moment decision, Tanenhaus had gear and a bike trailer prepared for his journey.

By the way, he’s planning to return the bike.
