Don’t worry, no one took a B-Cycle to Miami

People don’t go on cross-country road trips with B-Cycles.

Hey little guy, are you lost?

Hey Denver, I think I found one of your BCycles in a garage in Miami

Nah, B-cycle confirms this is a “very early B-cycle model” used before the bike share system launched. Those bikes were sold after that testing period, says spokesperson Mark Stevens.

People don’t go on cross-country road trips with the actual B-Cycles. Over the whole six-year lifespan of the system, only a few bikes have gone missing.

“We prevent leakage by obtaining users’ credit card info before they checkout a bike and charging for the replacement value of the bike if it is not returned,” Stevens said.

Of the few bikes that have gone missing, all have been found within a 30 mile radius.
