After reading the tale of the cyclist who rented a Boris Bike and climbed Mont Ventoux, it occurred to me that I might wish to employ some bike share programs to pick up missing states on weekdays between longer events. A quick google search yielded this chart, courtesy of People for Bikes:


Looks to me as if I can pick up all of my missing states, save the Dakotas, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and West Virginia, thanks to enlightened cities. I think supporting and publicizing local bike share programs is a good cause. What say you?
