Beijing bike-sharing program needs more riders

Beijing copies London’s Boris Johnson but with less success.

China Daily: “There are 14,000 bicycles for rent in the city, and they’ve been used 700,000 times. More than 20 million people live in Beijing.

Also, the bicycle lanes are often used by cars, making cycling a dangerous option.
