Just a year ago, the flood and colorful share-bike business that quickly turned into a craze in China but now has resulted in a battle of abandoned bikes after users are turning their backs at this means of travel.
The Chinese soon get fed up with the share bikes not long after the craze kicked up last year
The reason behind this belongs to the lacks of preparation for the regulations and infrastructure to provide an environment for the convenient use of bountiful shared bikes. For that, riders chose to park the bikes unorganizedly or just left them in some place forever.
A load of bikes, therefore, have been accumulating, impeding the access to many streets and roads in the cities.
