About

I am Francis Chu Wa, a product designer used to work for Philips during the period it is shifting it’s focus from electronic to Heath and Lifestyle. I switch from driving to cycling in 2004 and have been enjoying it everyday.

A large part of my job was to identify opportunities in product and service innovation to create high value with less cost. Switching from driving to cycling has been the biggest and most sustainable innovation in my personal life.

The daily ride helps to improve my energy level to deal with the stress at work. But cycling in Singapore has it’s fair share of gripes. The hot weather and road safety are the common complains.

I can’t chance the weather but I can testify Holland is not better than Singapore. I offer my help in the Safe Cycling Taskforce since 2005 and hope to improve the road safety for cyclists.

This website is an attempt to “scale-up” my cycling benefit from one person to many. I’m passionate to introduce this new mobility solution to you.

The operation of the website and the bicycles are financed with the money saved by not owning a car. So I don’t really care if this operation doesn’t make money – it would have been a total lost if I am still driving my car. Worst, I’d have lost over a thousand hours of fitness exercises over the last 7 years.

This blog is a space to share my experience and inspiration after seeing the world on a foldable bike.

A foldable bike combines with public transportation is really a fun and green way of commuting in modern cities. I’ve ride my JZ88 in many countries during my trips.

If you are not doing any daily exercise, you can look forward to become 10 years younger by integrating cycling in your daily commuting.

Hi Chu Wa,
I’m a reporter from TODAY paper and knew about you and your website through Mr Brown. Hope to reach you for some comments on a story I’m writing about London’s public cycle hire scheme and whether such a model could be implemented in Singapore. Can’t find your email or contact on your blog. Please do drop me an email with your contact details so I can contact you about my story. Thanks and hope to hear from you!
