Do The Ride Thing for you, for others, for the planet… for everyone!

Use your own bike, try an e-Bike, have more fun and feel healthier.

While you’re riding

  • Remember to have good bike manners on paths and roads.
  • Don’t ride on pedestrian pavements
  • On multi-use off-road paths, you’re probably the fastest mover on the path – make yourself heard well in advance and use your bell
  • Give way to slower path users and give them lots of space when overtaking
  • Be aware of more vulnerable users – like people with small children or those in wheelchairs.
  • Be extra careful at blind spots and corners
  • Be polite and courteous to other road and path users
  • Watch out for pedestrians and reduce your speed in busy areas
  • Beware of traffic and particularly big vehicles who may not see you easily
  • Wearing a helmet is usually a good idea!

with an e-Bike

If you haven’t tried an e-Bike yet, what are you waiting for?! Find out how easy it is to get around on an electric bike – no need to sweat and strain, the bike puts in the work for you!

Try an e-Bike at a GO e-Bike Hub. Hire one for a trip to the shops, to visit friends, for a few hours or for a few weeks. Once you’ve tried it you’ll be converted – it’s a fantastic way to travel!

For you

  • Using your bike to get around has all kinds of advantages.
  • It’s fun and can put a smile on your face.
  • Cycling can help to protect you from serious diseases such as stroke, heart attack, some cancers, depression, diabetes, obesity and arthritis.
  • Riding a bike is healthy, fun and a low-impact form of exercise for all ages.
  • It’s way cheaper than the cost of driving – save yourself some cash!
  • Cycling is easy to fit into your daily routine by riding to the shops, park, school or work.

For the planet

If we all make some small changes, the impact will be a huge help towards getting our planet back on track.

  • Use your bike instead of the car – especially for short journeys
  • Use public transport
  • Share lifts and car journeys
  • Plan your travel ahead and make less journeys
