In total there would be 1,000 bikes and up to 126 docking stations across the city.

The scheme sees users pick up a bike at docks around the city. The charge depends on how long they have the bike for.

The standard pay-as-you-go charge is £1 for 30 minutes riding. Monthly and annual price plans are also available.

Nextbike MD Krysia Solheim said: "The demand for bike share in Cardiff has been phenomenal since we officially launched here last year with the residents of the Welsh capital making over 10,000 journeys between them each week!

"We know that the current fleet is not large enough to satisfy current demand, so we’re excited to be adding new bikes to the collection. The community of Cardiff has wholeheartedly embraced the scheme and it’s largely thanks to public demand that the scheme has grown so quickly."

Since the initial launch 12 months ago, Nextbike has doubled the number of bikes available in the city from 250 to 500 and installed a further 37 stations alongside the original 25.

The scheme is backed by Cardiff Council and financially supported by the Welsh Government. It is also the cycle firm's most successful operation since it started in the UK in 2014.
