Divvy bikes are Chicago staples, so how does one end up in Mexico so far away from its docking station? When Chicagoan Ruperto Vergara saw the iconic bright blue bike parked outside a grocery store in Santa Ana Maya, Mexico, over 2,000 miles from Chicago, he snapped a picture.

Uploading it to Facebook and Twitter, his post garnered a reaction from family, friends, and fellow Divvy fans. One Twitter user commented, “she’s on vacation. live laugh love” which perfectly sums up the sentiment here. Let the Divvy bike enjoy her vacation!
A lost or stolen Divvy bike can cost up to $1,200, whether it was left unattended, improperly docked, or just plain missing. As for Divvy, they’re aware of the missing bike but do not know how this particular bike ended up so far from Chicago.
This isn’t the first time a Divvy bike hasn’t been docked at its station– but it is the first time a bike has ended up so far from Chicago. If you see a stray Divvy bike, tweet a photo of it to @DivvyBikes with the tag #Divvyphonehome.
We really can’t blame the Divvy bike for leaving before Chicago winter starts.
