Trying out cycling to work couldn’t be easier, thanks to the Loan Bike Scheme available to those living or working in Bath and North East Somerset.
The Loan Bike Scheme is funded by the Council and operated by local bike shops. Intended to help people swap from their car to a bike for their daily commute, the scheme lets people try out bikes before they make the plunge and buy one themselves. Our electric bikes are particularly popular for hilly areas around Bath.
How can I get a Loan Bike?
Our loan bike hire scheme has recently been updated. Bikes can be borrowed for two to four weeks depending upon availability and demand. All bikes will be supplied with the neccessary equipment including lights and cycle lock.
To request a loan bike, you can leave your contact details on our web survey or alternatively contact Take Charge Bikes, 01225 789568
The bike shop will arrange to complete the paperwork with you and take a security deposit.
