    A friend recently spotted someone riding a Divvy bike on Halsted near 138th St. out in Riverdale. That’s far from any Divvy station, so that one was probably stolen. Maybe that’s one of the missing South Shore Divvy bikes.

    I saw a Divvy at the Pullman library on Indiana and 110th last week.

    Any word on whether SSL service may return to Kensington (or 111th)?

    I’ve seen Divvys pretty far afield before. Not sure if they were stolen or not. Some people might not understand how the system works. I’ve also seen them parked in places other than docking stations.

    That’s impressive. I’ve taken divvy bikes pretty far out of the network, such as 7 miles up the North Branch Trail. Some people are willing to accept the member overage fees in order to get out of the city on some different trails. I did get a lot of strange looks from people who thought I was lost.
