Are e-cycles for me?

Riding an e-cycle is just like riding and ordinary bicycle, except you can go further and faster for less effort.  

E-cycles are good for you and good for the environment. But is there an e-cycle to fit you, your lifestyle and your budget?  

Find out everything you need to know about e-cycles.

Making cycling e-asier is an exciting new scheme funded by the Department for Transport and run by Cycling UK and partners.

The scheme has already launched in Manchester and will be available to specific communities across England. 

Choose from a wide range of electric bikes and cycles to meet your needs, including e-bikes, non-standard e-cycles and cargo bikes. Enjoy loans from top brands, as well as expert support and training, so you can make e-cycling a regular part of your daily life.

E-cycle support and training

If you haven’t been cycling for a while, or this is the first time you’ve used an e-cycle, you can book training and support at the e-cycle collection points. Experts will be on hand through our partner stores or via our community hubs.

They’ll discuss your skills and requirements when you come to collect your loan, or you can try out an e-cycle first at one of our events and make your loan from there. You can be assured our friendly experts will give you the confidence to get riding quickly and easily.
