Nearly 100 riders have registered so far on the scheme, completing around 300 journeys – a number that Cardiff City Council member Derme Bowen hopes will increase as we enter the (hopefully) warmer and drier months of the year: “Now that spring is almost upon us – it could be time to kick start your fitness and cycle to work instead of taking the train or the bus,” Bowen said.
OYBikes can be ridden for free for the first half an hour, with incremental charges after that. A yearly subscription is available for £18.
Bernie Hanning, OYBike Managing Director said: “Five per cent of our users are regulars who have changed their commuting patterns and now cycle to work.”
