Look after the bike


Keep the bike clean and in good condition. Always ensure that the bike is locked securely when you are not riding it. 

Complete Surveys


During and after the loan we want to know how you have been getting on with cycling and using the bike. We will be emailing some short surveys for you to complete.

At the end of the rental we will arrange with you the return of the bike. Make sure it is clean and in good condition.
