The above photo is what not to do with a Lime Bike, unlike what happened recently in Rockford.

Remember when LimeBike debuted in Rockford and people were tossing them into trees and the Rock River?

Well now people are using LimeBikes to reach farmers' markets and other local events.

Thanks for Rockford citizens and area businesses, people that might ordinarily be able to get to farmers' markets were able to do so. Over 300 people had transportation provided through the free use of a LimeBike or a free lift on Rockford's trolley car.

Transform Rockford says "more than 338 Rockford Housing Authority (RHA) residents attend their first farmers' markets during Farmers' Market Week in August."
