One was easy to navigate up hills, the other hard to get up the front steps. With the benefits the more recent of the two offered, trips through towns like Edenton or Beaufort seemed less like exercise and more like joy rides.

Universities like East Carolina University and towns like Durham have a mixed response to the presence of LimeBike. Likewise can be said for cities like Charlotte, with their own version of bike-sharing programs. A positive result is citizens utilizing a healthier form of transport. A negative result comes from cyclists irresponsibly parking the bikes after use.
