You can borrow an e-bike for only £10 a month, as part of a scheme to improve air quality and get people active.
E-Z Cycle allows you to ride a pedal-assisted e-bike - to give you a boost up hills or when starting off from junctions. They are a great way to return to cycling if you haven’t done so for a while, or if you have health conditions that make riding a regular bike tricky.
Cllr Denise Scott-McDonald, Cabinet Member for Air Quality, Public Realm and Transport, said: "This is one of a wide range of measures we’re taking to improve air quality across the Royal Borough.
"As well as helping more people try out cycling, which is a great way to take more exercise, the E-Z Cycle e-bike hire scheme will help reduce traffic."
E-Z Cycle is open to anyone who lives, works or studies in the Royal Borough of Greenwich aged over 18. The £10 cost is to cover insurance for a month.
Loan sessions, where you will collect your e-bike and do some training, take place twice per month:
- the fourth Saturday of each month at Avery Hill Park Cafe, Reinickendorf Ave, London SE9 2PQ
- the second Sunday of each month at The Valley stadium, Floyd Road SE7 8BL
You can also have the option to buy an e-bike at a discounted rate after taking part.
