EPIKs kicked off the planned e-bike hire/loan scheme at Easter. Director Ali Stopher had a training session with Kate Wylie of Colne Valley Cycle Therapy CIC.

In April and May we are testing of our systems, working with Manchester Bike Hire @McrBikeHire and Experience Community in Slaithwaite @ExperienceCIC.

The systems we are testing include the software managing the hires, the maintenance arrangements and the training.

We have 7 trailblazers helping us to get this scheme ready for planned employer e-bike loan schemes and community e-bike library projects.
