If you’re a casual user (eg once a week), simply pay as you go each time you ride. Costs will be charged against the card you registered with.

If you’re a regular or frequent user, then an annual subscription is a great option as it gives you the first 30 minutes of each ride free.  

*Please be aware that you may not be charged for your ride immediately. You card may be charged 24-48 hours after using the bike.

Customer Card

For extra convenience, you can also choose to receive a customer card for a fee of £2 when you register. 

This makes using the scheme even quicker and easier, as you’ll just tap the card on the bike computer to hire.

  • Bike left unlocked after hire: £1
  • Lost or damaged lock: £25
  • Damaged bike: £75
