I’m a bike angel and I feel special.
For those who don’t click through, bike angels are annual members of Citi Bike, who earn points towards membership extensions, gift cards and other extras by moving bikes to and from select stations based on supply and demand.
When I have time, I simply walk a little further to pick up a bike from a station that has too many. And if I have time, I go out of my way slightly to drop off my bike at a station that has too few.
This weekend, when I earned one point by moving a bike, I got a free coffee at Le Pan Quotidian that is good for two months.
My other points have given me free gift cards to use when friends and family are in town.
Plus, I get a kick out of the fact that I’m helping make life easier for other on-the-go New Yorkers who might need a helping hand.
How are you making your donors feel special?
