Pulse: Pursuits: 60-Second Critic: Bike Pottstown

Grade: A

While Philly studies the practicality of bike sharing, Pottstown is doing it. Stop into Tri-County Bicycles, hand over your ID, and tool away on a pretty powder-yellow beach cruiser, with ching-ching handlebar bell, for free! Absolutely free! Shop High Street, ogle the Victorian architecture, or ride the Schuylkill River Trail; Tri-County will even throw in a helmet, lock and map. How is this possible? A grant from the Pottstown Area Health and Wellness Foundation, plus backing from local groups. (Did we mention it’s FREE?) 248 East High Street, 484-491-6000,
