Borrow a Bike for Free
Riding a bike or electric assist cycle is healthier, cheaper and better for the environment. If you are considering buying a bike or electric cycle to get around, but don’t know if it’s right for you, why not borrow one from us first?
We have standard hybrid and folding bikes as well as hybrid and folding ebikes and an e-cargo/family cycle available to borrow, for free*, for up to a month. In addition to the bikes, we loan out locks, lights, helmets, panniers, high-vis jackets and bike maintenance kits.
*There is a refundable £50 deposit required for borrowing an ebike and a £100 deposit required for borrowing the e-cargo/family cycle.
