Last summer, it emerged that some of the company’s bikes — intended to help Googlers move quickly and in environmentally friendly fashion around the company’s sprawling campus and surrounding areas — were sleeping with the fishes in Stevens Creek.

The firm has 30 contractors in five vans, tasked with recovering lost or stolen bikes — and they carry waders and grappling hooks for pulling bikes out of a creek, the WSJ reported Jan. 5. Still, Google’s not certain how many bikes disappear for good.

With people being like that, in the end you will have to enforce controls. Users register for a bike and will be held responsible for it; since obviously it does not work otherwise.
