There was a time when Amsterdam was accredited the title of World Champion City of Bicycling. This is about to change. In Beijng there are literally ten-thousands of rental bicycles available at any 2nd street crossing.
Renting takes place fully automatically via a smartphone – scan the QR code and the lock will open. Rental fee is around 1 Yuan per hour (ca. 10c) which make it affordable for most Beijingers – during rush hours you will be faster with a bicycle than with a car or bus.
On top it reduces emmissions and improves personal health (not at all times, though thinking about smog).
Anyhow: a 100% thumbs up!
