The Loneliness of the Hyde Park Divvy Bike Station
A few days ago, when we were walking to the Metra stop, I noticed that the Divvy Bike stand was totally empty. No bikes in any of the stations.
This was due, I’m sure, to the fact that we had some seriously cold days last week. But it made me wonder if the missing bikes were due to people fleeing the neighborhood, or due to Divvy not being able to come and re-stock the bicycles.
Today, things were slightly better – with just one bicycle available. Thinking back, I’m not sure what’s sadder – the entire spot devoid of bikes. Or just one.
