The project is designed to support the wider adoption of more sustainable transport, encouraging people to leave the car behind and enjoy a low-carbon, zero emission alternative.

Nick Clark, corporate, enterprise and sustainability manager, said: “Our e-bike project is another pillar of our sustainable transport initiative, helping tenants and residents cope with rising fuel costs but also raising awareness of cleaner, greener and healthier travel alternatives.”

He added: “We we hope to play our own small part in supporting the wider cycling revolution underway since the start of the pandemic.”
