Alexandria Living Magazine, the only lifestyle publication for the Alexandria region, launched its website Jan. 16, 2018 with a bi-monthly print edition to follow later in 2018.
Alexandria Living Magazine aims to showcase the individuals, ebikes, places, businesses, events and issues affecting the dynamic and growing City of Alexandria and surrounding neighborhoods.
Alexandria is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the United States. As of the 2010 census, the population was 139,966, and in 2016, the population was estimated to be 155,810. Located along the western bank of the Potomac River, Alexandria is approximately 7 miles (11 km) south of downtown Washington, D.C.
Like the rest of Northern Virginia, as well as Central Maryland, modern Alexandria has been influenced by its proximity to the U.S. capital. It is largely populated by professionals working in the federal civil service, in the U.S. military, or for one of the many private companies which contract to provide services to the federal government. One of Alexandria's largest employers is the U.S. Department of Defense. Another is the Institute for Defense Analyses. In 2005, the United States Patent and Trademark Office moved to Alexandria, and in 2017, so did the headquarters of the National Science Foundation.
In other words, watt some folks in Toronto might term a "bedroom community".
Dockless Bikes Show Up in Alexandria
("Alexandria residents are divided over dockless bicycle sharing as a pilot program in Washington, DC continues."):

A resident on East Bellefont Avenue in Del Ray posted to a neighborhood listserv in June: “Have had a bright orange Mobike/bike share dropped in front of our house for a few days, any idea how to get Mobike to get rid of it? I have been all over their website, I'm not downloading the APP, and have sent them a Facebook message with no reply, a dumpster is starting to look like a valid option.”
In Alexandria, only Capital Bikeshare is authorized to operate. Riders are allowed to check out a bicycle from an electronic bicycle rack, and return it to another Capital Bikeshare rack at the end of their ride.
So, in Alexandria, some bikes are "electronic".
The five dockless bikeshare companies operating in the District under the pilot program are Mobike, Jump, Spin and Ofo. LimeBike offers both bicycles and electric scooters. Other electric scooter companies in the pilot program are Waybots and Bird.
Dockless in Alexandria
“Companies have not been granted any sort of permit to operate, or restriction from operating, in the City of Alexandria,” wrote Darren Buck in an email Friday to Alexandria Living Magazine. Buck is Complete Streets Program Manager in Transportation Planning at Alexandria’s Department of Transportation & Environmental Services.
Hehe... NO "restriction from operating"...
