Neighborhood heads up: someone near 15 and W NW has been spreading poop on the undersides of @bikeshare bike handles for the last two Sundays. Gross and a health hazard. Glad @bikeshare is fixing it, but bikers beware @PoPville pic.twitter.com/fLxcdl2jJC

it was at the 15th & Florida stop two sundays ago. i smelled it, checked my shoes, then realized it was *ON* the bike I was about to check out. left handle, luckily, because i usually check the right (back) brake before checking out. i hit the “broken bike” button & took another.
