Ride an ofo!
No excuse not to ride in Gear Up Girl this year when ofo, Australia’s leading bike share company, have free bikes for you to ride.
ofo is the world’s first and largest station-free bike sharing platform. We provide convenient and affordable urban travel – reducing carbon emissions, easing traffic congestion, saving energy, and promoting better living along the way.
ofo began in 2014 when CEO David Dai and his co-founding partners saw an opportunity to leverage smart technology to improve cycling as a sustainable mode of transportation. As students at Peking University, David and his partners convinced about 2,000 students to add their bicycles to a private registry.
Building upon this momentum, the company revamped its operating model to offer users standardised bicycles and began expanding to major cities across China and internationally. Today the service is open to anyone in over 200 major cities with a smartphone.
Using our bicycles is fast and easy.
