    There was an interesting article in Sunday’s trib that was basically Limebike and Ofo threatening to leave the city because of the “lock-to” requirement. It felt (to me) like a company complaining that a city dared to ask for what it wanted instead of “just get in line like everyone else”.

    I hear you, but I also feel like the city is a bit out of touch with the realities that the lock-to requirement entails, and how it affects the usefulness of DoBi in the low density south side neighborhoods included in the pilot program.

    Having a ‘mellow’ bike ride in downtown Chicago is like having Drivers Ed on the Expressway. Way too advanced for what you’re trying to do. I avoid downtown as much as possible. I can ride from the suburbs to Lincoln Park using only low-stress streets.
