    The write-up on the first article is incorrect. As the comments at GGW make very clear, the “more than 20%” figure applies only to small restricted blocks within each of the neighborhoods. For the neighborhoods as a whole, bike share is around 9-14% for Mount Pleasant and Bloomingdale and around 7% for Petworth.
