    So, does anyone have any thoughts about using dockless bikes outside of DC? I know you are not supposed to take them out of the city, although some companies don't discuss the issue at all and others don't say what the penalties are. But what happens if you find one already out of the city? Do you get penalized if you take one from one spot outside of the city to another?

    The question is not academic. My bike just broke. There are two dockless bikes not far from the Bethesda Metro. I'm contemplating taking one home tonight. If it's still there in the morning, I'd take it back to the CCT, whence it would be more likely to find its way back to DC. But I don't know whether I'd get penalized for leaving it overnight in Bethesda, assuming I picked it up in Bethesda in the first place.

    Edit: The available bikes were a LimeBike and a Mobike. Mobike has a specific policy against parking a bike outside of their area. LimeBike doesn't. So I took the LimeBike, and figured that at worst, they'd send me a nasty e-mail. We'll see what happens.

    So far, no Nastygram from LimeBike.

    Jump Bike is suddenly more than just a curiosity— huge increase in the number of bikes for last night’s launch party.

    I'm finally seeing more than three of them in the city, and ones closer than two miles from me.

    Interesting. There was a lime at Union station this morning that was missing a seat too.
