London Cycling Campaign members will help steer the spread of dockless bikes thanks to a deal signed with Ofo, China’s largest operator. LCC will advise Ofo to help best meet the needs of London’s cyclists, councils and wider community. Ofo co-founder Zhang Yanqi said it was his ambition to boost the number of journeys made in London from current levels of 2 percent modal share to more than 30 percent. To do this he plans to roll-out up to 150,000 bikes across the capital. Ofo has already launched with 1,000 bikes in Hackney, Islington and the City of London, as well as Cambridge, Oxford and Norwich outside of the capital. The LCC Cycling Projects team will work with members and with Ofo to help plan at a local level as to where and how cyclists want to access a bike sharing scheme. Over coming months LCC will also work with Ofo to organise a number of events to target new and returning cyclists.
