Bike sharing has seemingly become an overnight sensation, and I can no longer remember a time this city was without them. The popularity of Ofo and Mobike has inspired countless copycats to enter the market, each branding themselves with a different color. Not only do their bikes offer extremely cheap convenience (just RMB 1 for up to 60 minutes!), they unleash people’s creativity to be assholes (what’s the worst place you can park?). The end result is the takeover of the city’s streets and sidewalks by share bikes, not to mention a growing environmental disaster.
Please help save us from the share bikes.
