I've enjoyed the first season of Bublr bikes in Downtown.
They're fun, easy to use, free for those less than 30-minute trips to meetings and a great addition to our city's transit infrastructure.
But, after today, they're gone for the season.
I took one from our office at the CityCenter to the Third Ward today and tweeted about my trip, and the good people at Bublr let me know today's the last day to use them.
Many of the stations will be stored, but some will weather the winter. All of the stations, and several new ones, will be back in spring of 2015 for another big biking season.
