We are working with TfL to promote the use of eBikes in London
We are delighted to be working with Transport for London to promote the use of eBikes in London. Our collective efforts will help make London a more active, healthy & cleaner city.
TfL Electric Bike Forum London
Back in January 2017, Transport for London invited us (e-bikeshop.co.uk) up to City Hall to take part in a forum to discuss the use of electric bikes in London.
The forum explored the role of eBikes in encouraging more people to cycle, how TfL and the e-bike industry can work together to support the use of electric bikes in London.
It was a great day with industry leaders sharing thoughts and ideas around the room in a forum style meeting and presentation.
Following the forum, TfL liaised with the Department for Transport and Greater London Authority to develop a commercial proposition for how the public and private sector might work together to promote e-bikes in London. Moving forward they shared these ideas with Will Norman, the new Walking and Cycling Commissioner; and the Mayor.
New Dedicated TfL eBike Website
Today TfL launched a new dedicated website to promote the understanding of electric bikes, the wider use and where to get test rides locally for people to try an eBike. We’re proud to be a part of this with a dedicated profile and exclusive offers to new London electric bike users.This morning TfL launched the new e-bike campaign with a photo call at Finsbury Park. In attendance were Val Shawcross (the Deputy Mayor for Transport) and Will Norman (the Mayor’s Walking & Cycling Commissioner). Both Val and Will rode e-bikes today. Will also did an interview for London Live TV.
The new dedicated TfL website will also feature a number of short ‘eBike Stories’ featuring riders, finding out why they bought an e-bike. Not forgetting what benefits they think an e-bike can offer and why they love riding electric bikes.
We think having TfL behind the push to promote eBikes within London is a great thing and an exciting time for more to come. To find out more, visit tfl.gov.uk/electric-bikes.
