Meet Jeffrey Tanenhaus, The Crazy Guy Riding a Citi Bike Cross Country

On August 7th, 35-year-old New Yorker Jeffrey Tanenhaus checked out a Citi Bike from an East Village dock and never looked back.

[He] exited Manhattan by ferry to New Jersey and began pedaling 500 miles and counting. He and the bright blue bike, which he has re-christened Countri Bike, rolled into Paw Paw, West Virginia this week.

His planned route will lead him through at least 15 states and will end up travelling over 2448 miles to Los Angeles. Citi Bike has yet to comment on the trip, or what the late fees associated with the trek will work out to.
