    Divvy installed a bike rack next to my building last summer. It’s located where dog owners curb their dogs. The dogs are still doing their business in this spot, only now they do it ON the bikes. So anyone who rents a Divvy bike gets one covered in dog urine. Who wants that spraying on them while they’re riding. If you rent a Divvy bike, be aware dogs use them for toilets.
