Santander Cycles Leicester

We have just launched a brand new e-bike scheme for Leicester residents – Santander Cycles Leicester.

The scheme will eventually cover the city centre and surrounding neighbourhoods, with 500 electric bikes available to hire from 50 locations across the city centre.

Your journey will have to begin and end at a docking station, but there are already 15 of these fully operational, with a further 35 coming soon. The first docking stations include Gallowtree Gate, De Montfort University and Leicester Railway Station.

It’s quick and easy to get started, just register online, buy a plan, then use your smartphone to unlock a bike and start riding. Once you’re registered you’ll only pay for the time you use. Day passes and membership packages are available, from just £1.20 for a 30-day plan, and hire rates start at 60p for the first 30 minutes.

The scheme is COVID-safe and to ensure good hygiene the Ride On team will be disinfecting the equipment regularly. Users will also be advised to use hand sanitiser and/or gloves when riding the bikes, as well as taking wipes to wipe down the bike themselves before and after use.
