Silicon Valley scooter startup Bird bet big on Paris and lost. Here's where that leaves the buzzy Sequoia-backed e-scooter unicorn.

Electric scooter unicorn Bird lost tender processes to run scooter rentals in two key European cities: Paris and Lyon. Bird has raised more than $600 million to date, but its growth has been complicated by the emergence of copycat rivals, the coronavirus, and regulators limiting the number of scooter operators in their cities. The loss of Paris is a major setback for the company in Europe, and if rivals continue to win tender processes in other cities, Bird may be forced to buy its way to vict...

Jump bikes are now on the Lime app and heading to more cities

Three months ago, Jump’s bright red bikes and scooters had disappeared from city streets after Uber unloaded the micromobility company to Lime as part of a complex $170 million fundraising round. When the Jump bikes were finally spotted it was in a recycling yard, where more than 20,000 of them laid in piles, awaiting their demise. The Jump brand wasn’t erased completely. New, unused Lime bikes were tucked away in storage. Lime has started to add those Jump bikes to cities like Denver, London...

Buttermilk Lime Muffins

My favorite muffin recipes tend to be easy ones that can be put together in just a few minutes. This is generally because I like to whip up muffins in the morning and enjoy them when they are still fresh from the oven. These Buttermilk Lime Muffins are particularly easy to make and I almost always have the ingredients on hand to put a batch together on short notice. They’re fluffy and tender, with a bright punch of fresh lime and a sugary crunch on top. The batter is made using both lime zest a...

The rise and fall of the Jump bike, the electric machine that wooed Uber into a $200 million sale and is now being discarded by the thousands

Uber bought the electric bike startup Jump in 2018 for $200 million. The company's red, shiny e-bike technology had an edge over its competitors, promising ease of use and convenience. A recent Vice report details how just two years at Uber sent the company and its electric bike on a downward spiral. Former employees told Business Insider that Uber's New Mobility unit and its leaders lacked bike-share experience, including then-head Rachel Holt. "They put Rachel Holt in and she had no idea how...
