Earlier this week, I took Divvy bikeshare to work, since it was supposed to rain in the evening. Divvy is a very useful tool, and I’m lucky to have the option. I had to stop and re-dock my bike twice along the route to keep from going over 30 minutes and being charged for the extra time. That was not too much of a hassle, but I wish the max time were 45 minutes.
I took the Lakefront Trail to work. With the nice tailwind, it was smooth sailing, although Divvy is noticeably slower than my bikes (even my Dutch bike) because even its highest gear does not provide that much power.
Here is where I tried to cross Lakeshore Drive at a pedestrian sign and gave up after the walk sign never appeared in five minutes. I continued down the path and crossed at a car crossing.
If the rainy and cold weather sticks around, I expect to be using Divvy quite often this spring.
