The Travelwest Business Engagement team have a number of electric bikes available for businesses and organisations to borrow, providing an opportunity to trial whether they are a useful initiative for reducing fleet mileage costs and promoting healthier, more convenient ways of getting around for work – i.e. getting to meetings, appointments, site visits and making deliveries.
Businesses can borrow a fleet of up to 6 bikes for up to 6 months, free of charge. Also, the electric pool bikes come fully supplied with everything you’ll need – bike lock, panniers and lights, training, battery and charger.
So far, over 50 workplaces in Bristol have taken us up on this offer and found the electric pool bikes to be incredibly useful, fun and cost-effective.
“The electric bike has created significant savings for the business by replacing taxis and personal vehicle use for site visits and business meetings. ”
Alec French Architects, who borrowed an electric bike and have since gone on to purchase their own using a Travelwest match funded grant.
If your Bristol business or organisation is interested in borrowing a fleet of electric bikes, please get in touch as soon as possible as they are very much in demand.
