County Council Ebike Scheme

Leicestershire County Council are working in partnership with Active Travel England to offer Leicestershire residents training and discounts on electric bikes.

The scheme is back by popular demand this August/September 2024, with a limited number of spaces/vouchers available. See dates and booking information below for more details.

These vouchers are for £300 off the cost on an electric bike and can be used in bike shops across Leicestershire.

Just like conventional bikes there are many different kinds of electric bike available, from hybrid and commuter bikes to folding bikes, cargo bikes, road and mountain bikes. Our electric bike voucher can be used towards any type of electric bike. The discount scheme can also be put towards a specialised bike if you have accessibility needs.

Before you can claim your discount, you must attend an electric bike training session hosted by our safe and sustainable travel officers.

Our experts will be on hand to answer any questions you have from the best bike for you, how electric bikes work, the benefits of cycling, to bike maintenance and tips on how best to ride an electric bike

There is lots of information on e-bikes around to answer some of the most common queries. Your instructors on the day will of course be able to give you lots of information too but this guide from Sustrans is a really useful place to start. 

Please note: Vouchers are limited and subject to availability.
