Testimonials

“I love riding my e-bike, and I really want to hang onto it. That’s why I use a solid lock as my first line of defence against thieves. I also got a FOLLO GPS tracker fitted to give me some peace of mind. It means I can use my phone to see where my bike is at all times, and may help me recover it if it gets stolen.”

Patrick Morgan

Cycling Action Network

“Choosing Follo as the system for tracking our new e-bike library fleet has been just awesome.  The units themselves were affordable and simple to fit and the online tracking software is super easy to use, allowing us to record in real time the usage, such as distance,  when, and where and how often the bikes are used.   The Follo GPS system also provides great piece of mind in case of theft, which is a real bonus.”

About us

Follo was created by Eric and Ryan, both keen cyclists and eBike users in Wellington.

We worked together at Switched on Bikes, a rental eBike shop in Wellington. When bikes went missing on a busy summer day we recognized that having good locks was not enough anymore. We had to step up our security measures.

Being able to track our eBikes became an obvious necessity. A quick search online made it clear that nothing specifically designed for eBikes was available in New Zealand. We had to create our own solution. A little while down the track and all of Switched on Bikes eBikes tracked, we realized that we could help others protect their eBikes and fight the increasing theft happening here.

I have always been riding bikes, either for commuting, for fun or to travel around the world. You’ll find me mostly riding a cargo eBike with my 2 toddlers around Wellington.

I started Switched on Bikes in 2015 and we began offering bike rental and guided tours of the capital city. In 2020 we added NZ’s first eBike subscription service to our offering, by launching Subscribe to Ride for Wellington locals. My day to day work is driven by the potential for eBikes to make urban transport more sustainable.

With quite a few bikes stolen over the years, I know too well the awful feeling of losing your favorite bike.
