You may have noticed that since last summer, loads of red, yellow and green bicycles have appeared on London’s streets. ‘Dockless’ bike hire is massive in Asia, and three companies – Chinese firms Mobike and Ofo plus Irish start-up Urbo – are now trying to crack London. They’ve been here for nine months and already cover ten boroughs: this map by data researcher Oliver O’Brien shows who’s operating where.
