Event description

Description

We're delighted to be able to offer FREE E-Bike trials of 2 different Electric Bikes for an initial trial period between 17 November - 2nd December.

Each Electric bike is available for hire over a 2/3 day period within the two weeks and must be picked up at (or after) the time selected and returned before or at the time listed from our offices on 57 Queen Charlotte Street.

The two bikes available for hire are -

- VOLTTM Metro LS – 15” Step-Through “Folding” Frame – 20” Wheels (Size Small) 4,10-5,5ft

- VOLTTM PULSE, Medium 19” Frame with 28”/700C Wheels (Size 5’ 6” to 6’)

Some basic bike equipment will also be provided for use during the e-bike hire (bell/panniers etc.) - more details will be confirmed closer to the time of pick-up.

____________________

Participants will be required to complete a basic travel diary of an average travel week prior to hire and your travel during the week of hire - a simple form will be sent to you upon sign up to complete. You will also be asked to read some documentation about basic bike skills and maintenance prior to/during bike pick-up.

Please note - this bike hire is for confident cyclists who already have experience of cycling (including on roads) using a non-electric bike.

If you have any questions regarding the Electric Bike hire please email carboncollege@cropsinpots.org
