The months-long battle between Pacific and Mission beaches business owners and the city over boardwalk bike share stations is apparently over.

In a somewhat surprising development, the city and DecoBike have now both backed off on boardwalk bike-sharing.

“The city, per discussions with DecoBike, will focus on expanding the bike station locations by increasing the use of bike share for transit connectivity and short trips, which continues to support the city’s Climate Action Plan efforts and mobility hub plans,” said Stacey LoMedico, the city's assistant chief operating officer. “As a result, the city is proposing new locations in the urban core areas, which will be presented to the appropriate community planning groups.

“Based on this current focus,” continued LoMedico, “DecoBike will remove and relocate the bike stations listed below to urban locations through a city community outreach process.  The removal of the stations will begin [this week] and conclude the week of Sept. 11.”  

Beach bike-share station locations proposed to be reassessed/moved include: 4198 Mission Bay Drive, 1492 N Harbor Drive, 1899 N Harbor Drive, 4500 Ocean Blvd., 780 Thomas Ave., 700 Grand Ave., 760 Pacific Beach Drive, 1005 W Mission Bay Drive, 1098 W Mission Bay Drive, Dana Landing Road and W. Mission Bay Drive, 5800 Newport Ave., 2100 Spray St., 2727 De Anza Road, 2576 Laning Road, and 1240 East Mission Bay Drive.

This most recent turn of events was hailed by DecoBike boardwalk station opponents, who had become weary of tangling with DecoBike, trying to get them off the boardwalk and not competing with local bike-rental businesses.

“It appears the city is proposing to use bike share as originally intended; transit connectivity," said Brian Curry, a real estate consultant and immediate past president of Pacific Beach Planning Group. "The city’s previous program emphasized renting to tourists and providing direct competition to our local bike shop owners. Further, bike share kiosks should have never been placed on our boardwalk. Let’s hope the city follows through with their latest proposal."  

Another longtime resident and member of Pacific Beach Planning Group, Eve Anderson, said: "It's about time we returned that incredible view of the ocean and Crystal Pier to locals and visitors. DecoBikes – without warning – simply yanked out the benches that faced one of PB's iconic views and set up their bike kiosk.”

Especially relieved by this most recent turn of events are small business owners catering to recreational bicyclists, like Matt Gardner, longtime owner of Cheap Rentals and Mission Beach Rentals near Belmont Park, who were crying foul claiming their businesses suffered from unfair competition from DecoBike.

“I've lost about $120,000 over two years,” Gardner told Beach & Bay Press previously, adding,“I'm giving the city and DecoBike every chance to make it right.”

Making it right, according to Gardner, would mean “establishing a true commuter-friendly ride sharing network — or they recoup the money that's been taken away from me.”

Garner claimed the lion's share of DecoBike rentals, as much 77 percent, is for recreational tourists, and not as the final leg of a commuter trip utilizing mass transit, for which the bike share network is intended.

DecoBike refused further comment on the announced relocation of some of its coastal bikeshare stations, including those on Pacific Beach boardwalk.

The city signed a 10-year deal with DecoBike to set up bike rental kiosks on city property. Launched in January 2015 as a way to boost residential bike commuters, kiosks would also be a means of income because the city would share in a portion of the rental profits. The key to the deal was the minimal expense to the city, as the Florida-based DecoBike would foot the bill for the infrastructure.

It's unbelievable how fortunate I feel after finding your website. For the past 6 months, I have been so depressed after losing my husband to another woman. My money situation worsened so much that I thought I'd have to file for bankruptcy. I had a huge amount of debt and I didn't know what to do. Out of complete and total desperation, I contacted many of those so-called individuals who promised powerful magic, witchcraft or black magic. None of them worked and none were as wonderful, affectionate and warm as Dr Marvel has been. He is definitely different from the others and I felt immediate hope and strength from hearing about the promises he had to offer. He carries an air of purity and divine strength that is as pure as fresh snow on the ground. I requested Dr Marvel's most powerful spells and I was relieved right away that I had someone to solve my problems for me. His spells worked wonders and I am now back with my husband and my money troubles resolved itself after winning the lottery. Dr Marvel, I have no idea what I would have done without you being there to help me out. you can contact him via email extremespellhome@hotmail.com or call him on his Telephone 1 669 221 3962 . With best regards, Erin

This article is dedicated to the Doctor Sylvester. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when I was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like I always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Doctor called Dr Sylvester. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. Also he was there every moment until I got my happiness back. You could contact him via email at {stbenson9@gmail.com }He will help you in anything

My heart was filled with remorse and pain for the past 7 months when my husband ended our marriage and went to his EX lover because i was unable to give him a son. I was so devastated and almost committed suicide. I asked everyone i knew for help but all my efforts were useless not until i was refereed to Doctor Casera by Oliver who i met online that he could be of help to me for he has helped her before. I got in touch with him and i poured out everything i had in mind to him and he promised to make me smile and make me live a better life by getting my husband back with his powers between just 24 hours. I believed in him and to my very eyes, my husband came on his knees pleading for forgiveness to come back and rectify his mistakes and today we are living with so much Joy and happiness. If anyone out there needs help of any-kind, get in touch with the Doctor now for he will help you out..

For many years I have been carrying around something very negative. Everything in my life seemed to be going wrong. I was being layed off from my jobs, I couldn't hold my family together, and I didn't have any desire to move forward in life. This was not like me at all, so I knew something was truly wrong. Dr. Todd helped me to get my life back on track. He told me exactly what was wrong and he knew how to fix it! He gave me back my life that was taken away from me and for that I am truly thankful. Dr. Todd was always available to help me and answer my questions. When I had moments of crisis, he helped me through that to. I can truly say that he is very gifted. I am grateful to him and encourage other to bette their lives through his help. E-mail:manifestspellcast@gmail. com or manifestspellcast@yahoo. com

Hi all, Read my testimony! Getting ex back after a breakup. My boyfriend of a 2 year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we've been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn't have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com call/whatsapp: 2348160153829 save your crumbling home. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
