A ride on the Citi Bike is getting worldwide attention.

The NYC-based website animalnewyork.com wanted to go for a spin to the song “One Wheel Wheely” by Early B, who hailed from Jamaica.

Tyrone Williams, who owns the bike shop called “Dah Shop” on the lower east side, also has roots on that island. He tried some BMX moves on the bike.

You can view the entire video here on Animal New York.

This PIX11 News video was shot by Ken Evseroff.

Citi Bike rules do not specifically mention the performance of BMX-style moves. Any rider could be charged for damage or repairs because the bike, as the rules state, “must be returned in the same condition in which it was rented.”

The NYC Department of Transportation did not have a comment.
