Woman Spotted Riding Divvy Rental Bike On Dan Ryan

CHICAGO (CBS) -- There is plenty of traffic every day on the Dan Ryan.

But not bicycle traffic.

Stephanie Kemen and her boyfriend were heading south on Dan Ryan near the I-55 split about 10:30 a.m. on Saturday when they spotted a woman riding a Divvy bicycle beside them.

"All of a sudden my boyfriend's like, take a picture, take a picture! I didn't even know what I was pulling my phone out for," Kemen said.

"She was crammed in there. Obviously we slowed down, rolled down the window and he was like, 'you can't be here!' She was like 'I know, I know.' Then we felt bad. You could hear it in her voice," Kemen said.

Kemen called 311, then 911 to report the bicyclist.

She was connected to Illinois State Police, who had already heard about the woman. Police could not immediately provide information about the incident.

"I hope she's OK," Kemen said.

A representative for Divvy did not return a call for comment Wednesday morning.
