we.bike / Cycle Hire Concept


The world is at a turning point. In 2030 probably 60% of the world population is going to live in cities. The number of spatial compact megacities is increasing. I am convinced that bike sharing spots will become highly popular and certainly lift up the comfort of a living in cities. Humans are spending a lot of energy into their daily life and technology gives the possibility to turn this energy into electricity. With my concept the energy of a person who rides a bike is used to generate electricity to charge batteries. Subsequently this will charge technical devices in their carried backpack, without a single cable.
