Since their inception in 2013, Divvy bikes have become a staple of transportation in Chicago. The Chicago Data Portal contains data on over 13.8 million individual rides, exemplifying the widespread acceptance by Chicagoans and tourists alike.  I have found that the number of individuals aged 10 though 20 have doubled between summer of 2016 and 2017. Young chicagoans are adapting to the bike sharing service as fast as they are to ride sharing applications like Uber and Lyft.
