Bike owners set to benefit from global reach of local platform launch
Bike sharing in Queensland just got easier, with thanks to a new partnership between Bicycle Queensland and the world’s leading equipment sharing platform, Quipmo.
Thousands of Queensland bike owners stand to profit from the partnership, which is expected to offer a new sightseeing drawcard for domestic and international tourists.
CEO of Bicycle Queensland, Anne Savage, urged Queensland bike owners to register on Quipmo via quipmo.com.
“We’re pleased to partner with Quipmo to make this platform widely available in Queensland,” Ms Savage said.
“It’s a great way for Queenslanders to list their bikes online for the enjoyment of a local neighbour or international visitor.
“This partnership is key to our mission and will encourage residents and tourists alike to cycle for fun, to socialise, and to experience Queensland’s culturally diverse communities and natural environment.
“There’s no better way to see the sunshine state than by riding a bike and enjoying our great outdoors.”
Quipmo founder and CEO, Chris Evans, congratulated Bicycle Queensland for leading the way on bike sharing.
“Quipmo is proud to partner with Bicycle Queensland as the state’s leading agency for community cycling,” Mr Evans said.
“More than 24 million domestic and international overnight visitors travel to Queensland each year and we’d love to get them cycling.
“We believe this partnership has the potential to significantly grow the tourism potential of the Queensland economy by harnessing one of the world’s most rapidly emerging share platforms to promote participation in cycling.”
