Now you see it, now you don't: Last week, Chicago's controversial new bike share contract, subject of the current Culture column, popped up on the city's website list of contracts awarded. As noted in an update to the column, the website made it clear that the five-year contract, approved by the City Council in April, had been awarded to Alta Bicycle Share, Inc., May 7 for a total of $65 million.

But if you looked for that information today, you'd be out of luck. Shortly after our update, it mysteriously disappeared.

Off for a ride, perhaps?

So far, no response by the city to inquiries about what happened.
