OYBike was a bicycle-sharing scheme in west London, Reading, Farnborough and Cardiff in the United Kingdom. The Cardiff scheme ended 23 December 2011 with OYBike citing a lack of ongoing sponsorship. The program is similar to, but not exactly the same as, other programs in different cities. The OYBike system was developed by former cabbie Bernie Hanning over the last 20 years but officially launched as a trial in 2004. The firs iteration of website was started back in 2002.

4. Our Recommendation

As mentioned above there are multiple angles for this niche. But, in this case, as the domain name suggests we believe that you should start with less competitive terms in the bicycle niche market and then after some time you can go after some bigger “buying intent” keywords.
