“Dear PoPville,

I had my bike stolen from outside of my house this on Sunday at 5:35 pm. Please be on the lookout for the cruiser around the Columbia Heights area and beyond. It’s a 2017 LIV Avail Disc SL 1 – gray/silver with neon orange accents. The bike has disc brakes, stock tires and a stock saddle. If you see this bike, please take a photo, call 911 and reference police report 179-075.

I’m starting to get tons of messages like this one from Trent:

“Locked to the fence with their own bike lock and the wheel lock is all taped up with blue tape. No clue. On S street between 15th and 16th NW.”

Thanks to a couple readers for sending. Valerie writes:

“In case anyone wonders why we have so many bike shares in DC, it’s because VCs keep throwing money at them. From today’s Pro Rata newsletter:

LimeBike, a San Francisco-based bike-rental startup, has raised $50 million in Series B funding. Coatue Management led the round, and was joined by Andreessen Horowitz, DCM, GGV, Section 32, Yuri Milner and Kevin Durant.”

Thanks to Jill for sending:

“My husband and I are currently on vacation in Budapest and spotted this dockless bike share: Donkey Republic! Why on earth is the city not testing this one?!? Can’t think of a more perfect city for a Donkey Republic than DC. (Also enjoy the saddle with the a–, er, donkey…) Website shows they’re in many cities.”
