Multiplying

They are everywhere!  A month or two ago — none.  Now, there are these yellow ones, and also orange ones, and green ones.  They appear in rows and racks, and also randomly parked.  Who rides them, and where from and to? And how did those people transport themselves before?!  Are they replacing walking or riding the bus or Uber/Lyft?

They are new, attractive, and apparently reasonably priced to rent.  What happens when it rains?  And will they be stolen — for parts or whatever?  And who maintains them?

And who thinks it’s safe to ride a bike in downtown San Diego?  I think it’s hardly safe to walk…drivers seem to treat driving like a video game or sport, not thinking about the damage potential of a 2-ton vehicle.  Brave (foolhardy?) bike riders!
