    I see them almost everyday on the Hudson River Bike Path.
    The look so dull. You just stand there with a joystick and go straight. There is no room to slalom… and they top at about 10mph (or so), so I just blow by them on my 45 lb Citibike.

    The first one I saw, the guy was staring at his cell phone as he rolled west on 57th Street near 5th Avenue. I assumed at the time that he was controlling his speed with an app on the phone but I suppose it’s equally possible that he was just an idiot.
