Trial an electric bike for free

Commuters in Leeds can now borrow an electric bike free of charge for 4 weeks. Electric bikes are faster, easier to use and more accessible than traditional bikes and can sometimes be quicker than using a car or public transport. 

By switching to an electric bike for commuting, you can reduce your carbon footprint and help keep the city’s air clean. Click here to apply.
