BleeperBike Ireland
BleeperBike is Ireland's first stationless bike sharing scheme. Stationless bikes are equipped with a smart lock fixed above the back wheel of the bike, this smart lock controls usage of the bike by communicating with our custom built app. As the smart lock is permanently on the bike the bikes can be picked up and left anywhere that traditional bike parking is permitted, BleeperBikes do not require custom built docking bays.

How did BleeperBike start?
BleeperBikes began in 2016 when CEO Hugh Cooney saw the evolution of stationless bike sharing while holidaying in China. Hugh was a regular user and a big fan of Dublinbikes but could see how a "stationless" model would have the potential to make bike sharing more widely available. Removing the need for expensive to build docking stations means bike sharing schemes are no longer something our local authorities have to pay for.

What is our mission?
Our mission is to a bring a convenient, affordable and low carbon mode of travel to as many counties as possible in Ireland. Since launching in Dublin we have expanded outside the capital with a scheme in County Sligo. We will continue to work closely with local authorities throughout Ireland to roll out more and more BleeperBikes.

Why is it called BleeperBike?
Our locks make a distinctive bleep bleep sound when opening and closing so we are named after this sound 🙂

“I read a study that measured the efficiency of locomotion for various species on the planet. The condor used the least energy to move a kilometer. And, humans came in with a rather unimpressive showing, about a third of the way down the list. It was not too proud a showing for the crown of creation. So, that didn’t look so good. But, then somebody at Scientific American had the insight to test the efficiency of locomotion for a man on a bicycle. And, a man on a bicycle, a human on a bicycle, blew the condor away, completely off the top of the charts. And that’s what a computer is to me. What a computer is to me is it’s the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with, and it’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.” Steve Jobs
