New Delhi [India], Jan 22 (ANI): Mobycy, the Green tech startup that introduced the dockless bicycling sensation in India, announced completing 7,000+ rides within the first month of commencing operations. The milestone was released as part of the report highlighting the key first-month achievements and how users responded to the disruptive concept of smart bikes by Mobycy.

Within the first 30 days of operations, Mobycy has hosted 7,230 rides. Over 8,000 users have till date signed up for its app that boosts more 7,800 active users. Besides, the dockless bicycling is not a one-time phenomenon but the initiation of a change, as reflected by the repeated rides taken by users. On an average, users took more than 3 rides in the past one month.

Mobycy was further successful in solving the problem of short-mile connectivity, with users completing 2.8 Km long rides, on an average. While the users paddled their way for an average time of 29.53 min, the total distance covered by Mobycy's smart bikes was 19,600.90 KMs, half a lap across the globe.

The active participation by users also helped Mobycy manifest its vision of a greener, fitter, cycling nation, burning a sum total of 726818.64 Kcals. And that's not all! With users preferring the eco-friendly mode of commute than the motor vehicles, Mobycy was successful in saving carbon emissions of 5305.07 Kg. This achievement would otherwise require plantation of 6.2 acres of forest, or growing 137 seedlings for 10 years.

"We also partnered with Municipal Corporations and Police Departments for safe and hiccups free operations and are glad that our users perceived value in ditching the motor vehicles and taking to cycling instead. While this is just the beginning, the overwhelming response by users surely inspires us to further pull up our socks and bring the dockless bicycling sensation to greater masses," said co-founder Mobycy, Akash Gupta.

The smart bikes by Mobycy are equipped with IoT locks and GPS tracking and hence, don't limit commuters to the availability of parking stations. The bikes can be hired from the vicinity via Mobycy's app and upon the completion of rides, parked anywhere safely, with the only exception of private compounds, gated communities, etc.

In order to boost engagement and introduce the concept to the masses, Mobycy organized a public launch and live events at various venues, such as Amity University in Noida, Manav Rachna International University in Faridabad, Galgotia University in Greater Noida, and Sun City Sector 54, Gurgaon.
