How to make it work for everyone
You need to think about having a mix of different types of ebikes as this will help you cover the different needs of each group of employees. E-cargo bikes are great for moving heavy goods and are therefore ideal for employees who need to move heavy items such as files, sales samples or medical equipment. You could also include folding ebikes as these can be combined with trips using public transport.

We recommend the following accessories are included in the hire package:
- Gold standard locks
- Lights and reflectors
- Hi-visibility and reflective clothing
- Adjustable helmets
- GPS tracking devices
Have you considered to where the bikes will be stored when not in use? We can help you source various cycle parking solutions.
Regular servicing and safety checks will be included.
You don’t need to worry about insurance as this is included in the package price. We will provide insurance against theft and damage whilst being used by your employees for business use.
