  • Tens of thousands of shared bikes from companies like Mobike, Ofo and Bluegogo were being stored in a vacant lot in Beijing’s southern Fengtai district in June. The companies have been taking back their bikes since the city government began in September to limit the number of bicycles on the city’s streets. The total number of bikes in use has fallen from a peak of 2.35 million to less than 1.9 million. Photo: VCG_Gallery: Beijing’s Shared-Bike Graveyard
