ofo rides into Cambridge

It’s been a busy few weeks for us, as ofo took its first ride into Europe and landed in Cambridge, introducing 20 of our signature bikes into the city for the first time.

As China’s largest non-docking bike sharing scheme (to find out how to ofo click here), we wanted to bring our technology and our mantra to “share more and own less” to the UK. Not only is it an important goal for us to get more Brits cycling, we’re also passionate about reducing emissions and removing the congestion from city centres. We believe that cycling is the way to start solving these issues.


We decided to bring ofo to Cambridge first as it’s the country’s most cycle-friendly city, with the highest proportion of cyclists and an unrivalled cycling infrastructure. Plus it’s one of the most beautiful cities in the country! It means we can get a good idea of how the UK (and Cambridge) will use ofo and what we need to so to get Britain cycling.

We’ve employed a ground team who’ll ensure the bikes are being used properly and will be able to answer any questions. If you live in Cambridge, our ground team are as bright as our bikes and can be found wearing hi-vis ofo jackets (did we mention we like bright colours!) 

Over the first few weeks, we’ll be talking to residents, the council and the general public across our social channels to get an idea of what they think. If you’d like to give us any feedback, just get in touch via our social channels or drop us a note at support@ofo.co. We’d love to hear from you.
