300 million e-bikes in China, 690 million shared bike rides in Beijing...


Yesterday (sunday) morning we went to check out electric bikes in our local bike store here in Tongzhou district, Beijing as the old one is starting to show defects. Time for a new one as we use our e-bike quite intensively for going to the market or supermarket, handling company administration matters in local district government offices, going to the subway station or other purposes. Convenient, fast and without sweat in summertime :-)




The E-bike market is huge in China, ๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฌ ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—น๐—น๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฒ-๐—ฏ๐—ถ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ, expected to increase considerably in coming years. In 2020 there have been approximately ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿญ,๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฌ ๐—ฒ-๐—ฏ๐—ถ๐—ธ๐—ฒ ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ด๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฎ and 223,000 registrations had been in companies associated to the electric-bike business as of February this year.




For our regular (good old-fashioned and healthy pedal) bikes, we do not rely on ownership anymore but gladly and very conveniently participate in the ๐—ฏ๐—ถ๐—ธ๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐˜ here in Beijing. While there has been a hype and also many market suspicions around bike sharing in China few years ago, it seems to have increasingly stabilized and sustainable.

The city government strives to limit the number of shared bikes in 6 most densely populated city center districts to 800,000 to avoid blockages. Pick-up and drop off locations are also more regulated with possible penalties if you leave the bike at a congested place.
