Dockless bike-sharing giant ofo has landed in London – and its free until tomorrow!
There really is no excuse not to squeeze in a quick 10-minute workout anymore since a throng of bright yellow bikes have pedalled into Hackney. Have you spotted them yet?
We watched in envy as the yellow bikes launched in Cambridge and Oxford this summer with a great mission to get more people cycling, but now ofo, the dockless bike-sharing scheme that has taken China – and the rest of the world – by storm, has arrived and unlocked the joy of bike-sharing to Hackney’s residents.
Patiently waiting for their next rider, ofo bikes can be found in Hackney and are perfect for making that last leg of your journey go by in a flash. Perfect for nipping to the station, making a memorable day out with friends, or even a fun alternative for a first date. The cute baskets on the front of the bikes are super handy, making them perfect for a quick trip to the shops. All you need to do is download the ofo app, scan to unlock, and go!
After jumping into the saddle myself, I can honestly say that there is no better way to soak explore London’s coolest and most creative borough, all whilst getting buns of steel! ofo is eco-friendly, super sociable and, even better, is free in Hackney until 10th October. After that, it will be just 50p for 30 minutes, so definitely won’t be breaking the bank. So hop on and get ofo-ing today.
Not a Hackney local? Never fear. I’ve heard a rumour that ofo have plans to bring its cycling mission to more London Boroughs, so it’s just a matter of time before there’s one just
around the corner…
