Free bike "rental" program in Tulsa
The "Bikes for health: Free to ride" article in the Tulsa World discusses a free bike rental system being created by a local health foundation to help promote exercise and active, healthy living.

The Tulsa World also reported on a state-wide annual bicycle jaunt called Oklahoma FreeRide. It's similar, but on a much wider scale, to Arlington and Alexandria's recent bike ride covering 20+ miles on June 3rd. See "FreeWheel starts today."
Again, we need to do something like this in DC, at the neighborhood level, and city-wide, and maybe like the Oklahoma riders, we need to go into and touch various points in Maryland and Virginia while doing so.
