E-Bike Hire Scheme 

The Vale of Glamorgan Council is the first council in Wales to launch an electric bike share scheme. 

 

Following the success of the cycle hire scheme in Cardiff, we received requests for a similar system in the Vale.

 

In response to this, a pilot scheme was launched in Penarth and OVObike installed six docking stations, with one also due to launch in Sully.

 

Electric bikes (E-bikes) are a combination of a conventional bike with a motor that take some of the effort out of pedalling for the rider.

 

With top speeds of 25km per hour, the e-bikes can cover greater distances in less time and with less effort than conventional cycles.
