Alameda has Limebikes!

See my for fun blog…

Alameda has LIMEBIKES!

I was driving (yes, I really was) along Shoreline earlier this week, and I saw a bike parked on the walk path. I immediately thought, that’s stupid. What if somebody takes it? Then I realized it was a LimeBike! And I saw another just down the road! Check out the link. It’s very cool! And then over the weekend I saw them everywhere! Ride it, park it, and walk away!

As I was passing a person riding a Limebike on Santa Clara, I asked if she liked it. She said it was great..because no docking station was involved and she could go door to door. But she said the she maxed out the seat height…she would have liked it a bit higher.

New subject – price  changes

Check out the properties that have price changes. See those that sit around for 40+ days on the market. There’s one that been on the market for over 400 days (yes, in earth years). Motivated seller? um, probably not.

Look for them under the Total Active & Pending sales below. (I sound like a Trader Joe’s Fearless Flyer advertisement)
