OVO Bikes no longer available in Cardiff

Using the nextbike app

From the start of 2024 OVO Bikes will no longer be available to hire across Cardiff. We understand that the stands across the city, including the one in Station Road, will be removed during the course of the year.

This short term bike hire service which was previously known as NextBikes have suffered many instances of vandalism which has caused an increase in the service provider’s costs and a deterioration of service as insufficient bikes were available to service demand. This was particularly noticed as the station provided in Radyr had been reported as rarely had any bikes available for use.

Cardiff Council are currently undertaking an assessment of possible future models for short term hires which it may implement in the future.
