"I have an ebike too. I just wanted to warn the other users," this source, who wishes to remain anonymous, told us. "I saw them checking only, I didn't stay long enough to see whether they took them away but I saw the truck already had bikes. If from there or other stop I don't know."

on 11/29/2016 - 11:19 am

At 10am on the morning of November 29th, uniformed and plain clothes police officers began confiscating ebikes on the corner of HaiChang Street and Gongyuan Nanlu. They cordoned off a large area about 40 square meters in the parking lot in front of McDonald's to be used as the holding area for consfiscated ebikes. One plain clothes officers told ShekouDaily that they weren't leaving until they filled the area up.
