Electric Bike programmes
How does it work?
Free Ride is running e-bike group rides over summer 2023/24. We want to give our members the opportunity to ride and connect and see iif an e-bike might work for them, for recreation, fitness or transport.
We'll travel on cyclepaths, trails and safe routes from our Naenae workshop weekly.
These rides will be lead by qualified ride leaders, and volunteers. Our ride leaders can give you tips and help you improve your confidence on an e-bike as well as show you some excellent places to ride around Lower Hutt.
There are a limited amount of bikes and sizes, so please be patient when booking. We have 10 bikes to ride from our Library, but we are also inviting e-bike owners to join us too. The ride limit is 12 people.
Our e-bike library programme is funded by Waka Kotahi and is a pilot programme.
We have a range of bikes available, and a range of sizes. Our experienced ride leaders will fit you for the right bike for you. We will have helmets, high vis gear, panier bags and seats and helmets for tamariki available for the rides too.
