Photos: Weirdest Places Washingtonians Have Found Dockless Bikeshares

In September, dockless bikeshare companies LimeBike, Ofo, Jump DC and Spin rolled into the city, potentially freeing people from Capital Bikeshare's (minimally) burdensome docking stations. But sometimes when rules are relaxed, people take advantage. The dockless bike companies track the bikes and move them from inconvenient locations — but that doesn't stop passersby from getting in a good laugh first.

Someone caught this bike trying to climb a tree. Or maybe a squirrel rode it to work downtown?

Thankfully, someone stepped into rescue the abandoned "aqua bikes." The dockless bikeshare companies' websites say they send out employees to move improperly parked bikes. Whoever got these bikes out of the river should have taken the rest of the day off.

To be fair, maybe the bike couldn't stand up properly with that unfortunate front wheel.

Unless there are bike-riding mermaids in Rock Creek Park, someone missed the mark.

Maybe birds are hard to predict, but definitely don't park a dockless bikeshare near any nests.

Bonus round! For a dockless bike, this wouldn't be terrible. But you definitely need to put Capital Bikeshare bikes back in the dock. Carlos Carmonamedina snapped this picture and made a good point: The person who thought this bike didn't need to be docked is in for a nasty surprise on their bank statement.
