    Tyrone Williams rides a Citi Bike without hands or feet in a video published last week.

    A New York cyclist did a lot more than get from point A to point B on a Citi Bike recently. 

    Tyrone Williams, a professional BMX biker and co-owner of Dah Shop bicycle shop in Chinatown, stars in a viral video where he does tricks on the shared bicycles.

    The video has garnered more than 1 million plays on YouTube and shows Williams popping wheelies, riding hands-free and doing other tricks on the bikes. 

    Williams said he thought the bike-sharing program could benefit from the viral video.

    "In some ways it's like they're getting a lot of exposure as well, because you have more than a million views of someone riding your bike and doing something you thought couldn't be done," he said.
    Citi Bike hasn't responded to requests for comment on the viral video.
