If anyone wants proof that Cleveland needs a bicycle-share network, Platform Beer Co. co-owner Justin Carson has an anecdote for you.

Carson, sponsor of a recently launched bike-sharing program that offers rental bikes at six self-serve locations in Ohio City, saw a man outside his Lorain Avenue brewery eyeing the lineup of bicycles locked to the station there. The man only spoke Spanish, so Carson grabbed a bilingual co-worker who took the fellow through the easy process of renting a bike through a mobile app provided by the system. Moments later the man was pedaling down the block on his lightweight “Breezer” bike.
