Hook Norton Low Carbon Electric Bikes are Live!
Ready, Steady, Go …! After the successful trial with the four e.bikes stationed at the Primary School last year, there was lots of support from our community for Hook Norton Low Carbon to purchase four electric bikes and to keep the scheme running in Hook Norton.
If you haven’t tried one yet, and want to see just how ideal they are for the hills around the village, just drop us a line (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll arrange a trial ride for you.
Quotes from last year’s launch event included ‘Just brilliant I want to take it home with me’, ‘Okay I want one! It’s great; it’s like riding on the flat, it’s so easy!’, and ‘I love it it’s life changing’.
How it works:
If you want to be an e.bikes member, you need to be a member of Hook Norton Low Carbon, and then then the membership fee is only £5 a year and you can then rent as many bikes as you like (and are available) at £2 per bike per day.
The bikes are booked via the ebikes website where you can check availability and book your bike(s). You will be invoiced for your usage at the end of each month, and you then can pay your invoice by bank transfer (if your invoice is small, we may roll it over to the following month!).
The bikes live at the Primary School, and there are even helmets and panniers available, if you need them (please email to check availability).
