Staying in business for two years is not usually cause for a big celebration, but in China’s ruthlessly competitive bike sharing industry surviving even for that relatively short period of time is a major achievement.

So when Shanghai-based Hellobike, known for its signature blue and white coloured bikes, threw a two year anniversary party at the city’s W Hotel on the Bund, it seemed entirely appropriate given that the start-up has clawed its way to number three spot behind Beijing-based Mobike and Ofo, which were founded three and four years ago respectively.
