Community e-bike hire

Transition Stroud and social enterprise The Bike Drop are working together to run three e-bike hire pilot projects across Stroud district in collaboration with the many Climate Action Networks, community groups and cycling enthusiasts in our region. These pilots will form affordable e-bike hire hubs that are run by local communities to help more people decide whether they would like to make the switch from car to e-bike.

This project has been funded by Stroud District Council’s Active Travel fund, and aims to introduce more people to e-bikes and help reduce the number of short car journeys in our area.

We are still in the early planning stage, but we will be keeping this page up to date with evolving plans as we decide locations, hire terms and what kind of e-bikes will be available in collaboration with our community partners.

Want to be involved?

We can put you in touch with your nearest community group partner, or work with you directly if you think there could be interest in this project where you live. Drop us an email on admin@transitionstroud.org to find out more.

For an introduction to the project and our key proposals, please see these presentation slides from our November 2023 information event (links to video recording).

Coming soon . . .

We will be updating this page with news about who our first pilots will be in February 2024, and start launching the first schemes in April 2024. Want to be involved? Get in touch.
