Hear testimonials from five NHS Forth Valley staff who took part in the 90 day eBike trial.
Forth Environment Link (FEL) offers NHS staff the opportunity to trial an electric bike for 3 months to commute with and use for leisure too. They provide you with:
- An electric bike for 3 months
- A helmet
- A lock
- A pannier bags
- A personalised care package highlighting cycle-friendly routes from your postcode to your NHS site
- Wraparound support from the FEL team
Cycling to work with an electric bike is great! Unlike a normal bike, the electric bike has a motor that provides power assistance when you’re pedalling to ease the amount of effort required. This makes cycling on a steep hill so much easier; it allows you to ride for longer, cover more miles, and still enjoy all of the wonderful benefits cycling offers. It’s also more environmentally friendly than your car and it lets you save money on petrol and avoid traffic jams.
