RENO, Nev. (AP) — A bikeshare company is taking hundreds of its bikes off Reno and Sparks streets due to winter weather.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that LimeBikes is putting about 700 bicycles into storage until there is no risk from icy and stormy weather. They have been pulling bikes since Friday, including from South Lake Tahoe.
Lime spokeswoman Brooke Brumfield says it's too dangerous for riders to navigate slippery streets.
But about 150 bikes will remain for commuters who solely depend on them.
LimeBike has been present in Reno since May as part of a one-year pilot program where riders pay through an app.
Reno renewed its contract with Lime in September. But Sparks officials opted not to renew theirs when it expires next month.
