Pedal Power in Plymouth to Promote the City's New E-Bike Scheme.
E-bikes are coming to Plymouth in an exciting new scheme which will see hundreds of e-bikes available for hire at affordable rates from charging hubs around the city. There'll be more information in the months to come, and an article can be seen here on the new project.
As part of the early promotion of the e-bike scheme, we took the pedal power kit to the University of Plymouth yesterday as part of the Freshers' Week.
People pedalling were powering a large TV which was showing a film about the e-bike scheme. It was quite easy when four people were on the bikes, but hard work when just one or two people were pedalling.
It was a great day, with students also engaging with Plymouth City Council who were able to collect data on popular likely destinations for customers and explain more about their scheme.
A big thank you to the University of Plymouth, Plymouth City Council, the students and the weather, which supplied us with sunshine all day!
