Dockless bike sharing scheme to launch in Sheffield

Recommended Posts

Seen quite a few being used by drug dealers to get around Sheffield to pedal their wares to the homeless beggars on the streets. So a big thank you to OFO for making the begging homeless drug problem in the city centre that bit more worse.

 

Facilitation is not the same as causation.

There's a couple of days a week when it would be really handy for me to use one of these. Every time I try to find one though, there are either none showing on the app, or the ones that do show aren't actually there when you get to the location.

 

It's even more frustrating when the location is showing inside a building.

Nah, that’s Popple Street

 

as I was driving up Owler Lane on Thursday evening, there were 3 guys kicking and stomping on an OFO bike. These weren't kids, they were easily mid to late 20s. What type of pillockry is that? The man in the car in front of me got out of his car and shouted at them, and they sloped off looking sheepish.

 

What is wrong with people? There's always at least 2 ofos buckled wheels or smashed seats round that area. :confused:

Wonderful a load more bikes ridden and dumped by the irresponsible. Fed up dodging the yellow peril riders on the pavements. Perhaps the money invested in this would be better spent providing cycle lanes for the responsible riders to ride safely

Where would you put the cycle lanes? The narrow ones on main roads are completely unsafe to ride in. Then others go right through parked cars.

 

Then when its legally a shared pavement, pedestrians are completely oblivious.

It's private money, so how would investing in cycle lanes make them a profit?

Seen another one this week, ofo lock gone and cheap personal lock to stop others from taking it.

Considering pensioners get free bus pass in this country young people should get free bicycles as well.
