The Electric bike hire project
The ATC was approached by the National Trust
as part of the development of their Green Transport plan for Gibson
Mill. As the area is one of extremely steep hills, cycling is not a
mode of transport which can be accessed by everyone.
However an electric bike will flatten those
hills – and we developed a plan for an Electric Bike hire scheme
which would run between the ATC, the train station and Gibson Mill.
The project will also include a bike recycling facility.
Similar schemes have been successfully run in
other areas with a similar landscape and the ATC and the National
Trust look forward to being able to establish the project when a
suitable sponsor can be found.
