Lime and Bikeworks join forces to offer e-scooter and e-bike training
The two hour sessions aim to improve cycling skills and confidence
Lime, a leading shared mobility company, is joining forces with Bikeworks, a social enterprise, to provide Londoners with e-scooter and e-bike training opportunities.
Lime operates rental e-scooters as part of London's trial program, and also provides dockless e-bikes in various boroughs of the UK capital.
Aimed at improving trainees’ cycling skills and raising awareness of Lime’s geofencing and parking rules, the sessions will be conducted by instructors from Bikeworks, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to addressing social and environmental issues through cycling.
The training, which lasts for approximately two hours, will cover cycling techniques and general skills, with participants required to be 18 or over and hold a valid driving licence to take part.
Lime e-bikes and e-scooters will be provided, and will offer participants a free helmet and promotional codes for several free Lime rides.
The first e-bike session will take place on 25 February at London Fields and Hackney Downs, while the e-scooter sessions are set to commence in March.
Lime and Bikeworks say they will host an e-scooter training session in every borough participating in the London trial scheme.
The training sessions can be found and booked through Bikeworks’ website.
Currently, only e-scooters from mobility providers like Lime are legal on public roads, though this is expected to change with the new Transport Bill.
