Cycle Hire


The bikes can be hired on a Pay As You Ride (PAYR) basis.

Pedal bikes cost 50p to unlock and 5p per minute to ride. E-bikes cost £1 to unlock and 10p per minute to ride.

Minute bundles

You can also save money on your ride with minute bundles. Buy between £5 and £40 of minutes in advance and pay just 5p a minute to ride both standard and e-bikes. There are no unlock fees for standard bikes when you purchase a minute bundle.
