Six new e-bikes have now come to Assynt, and will be made available for local people to hire from Assynt Leisure Centre.
(Due to the general intent of the main funding stream, and due to a desire not to compete with existing local bike hire aiming at tourists, the project aims to hire the e-bikes to local residents only.)
We expect them to be available to hire from mid July.
Income raised from hiring out the e-bikes is expected to go jointly to Assynt Leisure, and towards the costs of maintenance and future replacement of the ebikes by Assynt Development Trust into the future. Further info on hire rates etc will be published very soon.
This project has been jointly funded by:
Energy Saving Trust ebikes fund, Coigach Assynt Living Landscapes Partnership’s small grants fund (funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and others), and Assynt Development Trust own resources.
