During the Covid-19 crisis we have two lockdown initiatives giving keyworkers free access to electric bikes.
We have offered NHS key workers exclusive use of our free ebike library allowing them to get to and from work without using public transport and thanks to funding from Cycling Scotland, we have offered keyworkers free annual memberships for our public electric bike hire scheme, Forth Bike.
Forth Valley’s two bike share schemes, nextbike and Forth Bike, are still operating. When hiring a bike we would recommend wiping down the main contact points, such as handlebar grips, saddle, gear and brake levers, with sanitising wipes. Please also wash or sanitise your hands before and after use.
In Phase 3, you can leave your home for any purpose. There is no travel restriction within Scotland provided you are acting in line with all other guidance. More information can be found on the Transport Scotland website.
It is advisable to walk or cycle for your health and wellbeing. If you’re not self-isolating, we recommend walking or cycling for journeys and exercise.
