Beneath the picturesque surface, something dastardly was afoot:P1340231 (2).jpg

Cedar-apple rust on the hawthorns. Ack!


DIVVY REPORT: Rainbow Beach station removed. Is it temporary, permanent, or a figment of the Divvy computer system? We don’t know.

Otherwise, all stations operational. Up-to-the-minute updates here.

And in other bike share news…

New Citibikes in New York have continuously variable transmissions. I.e. instead of 3 discrete gears, you get an infinite spectrum and can “slide” the shift lever into the gear ratio of your choice.

Will this hi-tech feature be coming to Divvy? Hmmm.
