Try a bike

We have a selection of e-bikes and cargo bikes which can be borrowed from the hub 

Electric Bikes

Electric bikes (ebikes) are bicycles fitted with an electric motor that provides an 'assist' to the bike's rider making hills and long distance cycling so much easier.    Ebikes offer the same great benefits as traditional bicycles including improved health and connection with community.  They also enable many people who would find it difficult to ride an ordinary bike to cycle regularly.  With an ebike cyclists can travel greater distances and ride for longer. 

Free ebike loans

As part of our response to Covid-19 both Forth Environment Link Active Travel Hubs have prioritised use of their ebike libraries for key workers to commute on. This has been extremely popular and if you are a key worker interested in joining the waiting list for this, please email Ray at ray@forthenvironmentlink.org or Emily at emilyc@forthenvironmentlink.org with your name, height, and contact details.
