    It looks like folks should see their Bike Angel points in the app within a week or so:

    I’m back in business. The lifetime rewards are pretty good.

    I have not played before, but once in the past I looked at the time/reward ratio, and it seemed pretty high. Converted to $/hr it came out to something under $5 if I recall. So it seemed like not worth the time. (With the exception of serendipitous, point-earning rides.)

    Maybe that's changed or I did the calculation wrong. In general, how much time does it take to earn, say, 50 points?

    Bike Angel key fob is priceless so the payoff is priceless dollars per hour.

    The return is low. What I found from the first incarnation was that when I was choosing stations to pick up and drop off that I would choose options that would score points if it wasn’t inconvenient. This had a side benefit of taking me to stations that I otherwise wouldn’t be aware of. The program is much easier to do in DC where there’s a density of stations.
