County Council Ebike Scheme

Leicestershire County Council are working in partnership with the Department for Transport to offer Leicestershire residents training and discounts on electric bikes.

Throughout summer 2021 the county council’s safe and sustainable travel team, Choose How You Move, will be hosting events and training to those interested in purchasing an electric bike using one of the government’s discount vouchers.

These vouchers are for £300 off the cost on an electric bike and can be used in bike shops across Leicestershire. They are for a limited time only and offered on a first come first served basis.

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. Training sessions will take place throughout 2021.

For those who would like to try an electric bike or talk to our team of cycling experts about this scheme before booking onto a training session the team are hosting a series of drop in events across the county.

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.

Dates for training and events will be confirmed soon but in the meantime complete a registration of interest form below so we have your details and can get in touch when we have confirmed dates and locations. 

Please note: Vouchers are limited and subject to availability.
