I grabbed this shot outside of my office in Lexington of an orange Spin bike. I've been seeing them everywhere and decided to do some digging. I've come to find it's a new platform where you rent a bike for 30 minutes for only a $1.

I find this model extremely intriguing and can't wait to try them out! Once you download the app you just find an available bike and scan its QR to get started. Each bike is solar powered and equipped with GPS and a locking mechanism. This means they are dockless so once you're done using it simply leave it on the side walk and go on with your day.

Where i live, the cheapest is 1.5 usd 30 minutes
Yet, the first 30 minutes is free for everyone

That's a really cool concept. It would definitely make it more accessible to give a free allotment of time.

miss living there

You used to live in Lexington? Go Cats!

Cool that looks perfect shot for the day :D

It looks cool!

·

Yeah they are everywhere in the city it seems. I can't wait to take one for a spin some time.

Nice :)!

wow, we were syncd up on the rent-a-bike posts!

·

I just seen that! Great minds eh?

we have similar all over the UK now (off) and seen them in Italy too. They are really useful but so many are vandalised or thrown in rivers!

·

I hadn't thought about that! I thought about the lines of theft but I assumed the GPS would keep most people away from them. I haven't heard much about them being destroyed but I can definitely see that as an issue. At $1 a bike I'm sure they make enough to offset any damages.

:( I hate to see that. People can be so cruel at times and not realize a good thing until they destroy it and need it.

Yeah. It's only the minority though.

We have yellow ones where we live. People are getting annoyed with them.

·

Nice! I can see how people could get frustrated with them but I personally love the idea especially for a smaller city like Lexington.

@patrickulrich yes sir, live in Florida now. #BBN for life

@wavyplague I'm so happy to see you haven't adopted the gator chomp! :) Always nice to meet a fellow #BBN follower. :)

Isn't it? I can't wait to give them a try sometime.
