    Default Ebikes!

    "We want you to know about some important changes to our terms.

    "We are updating and revising our Bicycle Rental Agreement and Liability Waiver and Release. Effective September 5, 2018, if you rent a bicycle or use our website or our other services after that time, you are agreeing to do so under the new terms.

    "Why are we doing this?

    "We have some exciting additions coming to the Capital Bikeshare fleet. Soon we’ll be introducing new pedal-assist bicycles as another solution for getting across Metro-DC. Therefore, we’ve changed our Rental Agreement and Liability Waiver and Release to include policies related to pedal-assist bicycles."

    Motivate have ebikes in San Francisco branded Ford GoBike+ recently they introduced an in house design that looks like a capital bikeshare bike with a front hub motor, feedback comments on Twitter are positive with riders liking the features shared with the standard bike, instead of the 3-speed IGH WTOP report it has an “infinity gear” presumably a CVT (https://wtop.com/dc-transit/2018/09/...pilot-program/)

    E-CaBis are on the streets tomorrow. They will be black and will use the regular CaBi dock according to the Post. It appears that normal CaBi rates apply.

    Only 80 in the system. Which means it'll be like trying to find a unicorn. I'll give it a test ride if it's not a competitive sport just to locate one.

    I find the "juicers" or volunteer ($) scooter chargers quite entertaining. Today I saw a guy on Army Navy Drive riding a Bird, while he had at least two others somehow balanced onboard. Ghosting to an extreme.
