Bulgarian living here rounds up Singapore’s damaged rental bikes
... Mr Girginov’s Volunteer Bike Patrol initiative has taken off, collecting over 400 damaged bikes in about seven trips.But this inherently strikes us as unfair. Why is a profit-making business depending on civic-minded volunteers to clean up their mess?
The group gathers the broken bicycles in one neighbourhood, moving them to a central location. Mr Girginov then rents a lorry for S$200 a trip to pick up and carry the bikes back.
Mr Girginov has funded the effort until now, but expansion might prompt him to consider crowd-funding or seek sponsors, he said.
