Could your business or organisation host an ‘OurBike’?
Get in the saddle to support a community-led green initiative in your neighbourhood.
Islington Council is looking for a business or organisation to host its ‘OurBike’ shared electric cargo bike with storage, that can be hired by individuals or businesses as an alternative to motor vehicles.
Hosts can use the bike themselves (20 hours of free use per month) but must keep the battery charged and report any problems. It is also preferable if the business is near plenty of homes and other businesses to encourage more usage, and fronts a wide pavement with several cycle stands where the bike can be parked.
Local businesses, organisations, charities, residents’ associations or groups of individuals are welcome to apply to host. The bike will be named after your group, will include your branding, and you’ll feature in related promotions.
The scheme is subsidised by the Council and offers new users one hour free to start, or three hours if they are a business. After this, bike use is 75p per 15 minutes.
