Everyone wants to feel happy, healthy and full of energy, but the stressful morning commute makes this a challenge before the day’s even begun. We started Fizz Bikes to get people cruising to work using a great means of transport - the electric bicycle. By creating partnerships with local organisations and businesses, and working to improve cycling infrastructure, we are making it easy and affordable for anyone to benefit from this excellent form of personal transportation.
Cycling on an e-bike’s like having the wind pushing you along. You still get endorphin-inducing exercise; you just have a friendly little motor giving you a hand. That means you go faster without puffing yourself out too much - making the e-bike one of the best alternatives to car travel there is. And there’s a lot more besides.
Unlike most bike share schemes, you keep your Fizz Bike with you at home. Hop on, fizz along, hop off, while your colleagues search out a parking space.
No-one wants to turn up to work sweaty and exhausted. We love e-bikes because the gentle exercise is just enough to wake you up in the morning.
Ahh, e-bikes: The wind in your hair, the thrill of the downhill even when you're going up. Plus, there’s a certain buzz as you whizz past slow-moving cars.
The average person spends 1 year of their life commuting. Why not use this time to do the exercise you have always wanted to?
Never get frustrated by the traffic again. With an e-bike it is easy to travel at a constant 15.5mph. This provides a reliable and consistent journey time - with the added bonus of easy parking.
By working with local employers and councils we are aiming to get as many people as possible enjoying this form of transport. It works out as £1.50 per day, and with no insurance costs or car parking fees it's a really cost efficient way of getting around. To fully recharge the battery it works out at roughly 5 pence!
Air pollution’s horrible for us. By riding a Fizz Bike, you’re helping to make Bournemouth & Poole a greener, healthier place.
We have a range of e-bikes available. Easy and flexible, pay per month and choose how long you want to use it for. Prices are from £35 per month (includes a £35/m community subsidy) and includes a lock, lights and a service every 6 months, with the aim to own it yourself at the end of the scheme.
By getting more people on electric bicycles and having fewer cars on the roads evidence shows that we can make a real difference to the safety of all road users - pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. This will make a real difference to school children wanting to walk or cycle to school.
We are extremely grateful to the Naturesave Trust for giving us a grant of £2000 to help develop the scheme. Environmental, Conservation and Community Renewable Energy Grants provided by the Naturesave Trust
At the moment we are simply looking for commuters that would consider using an electric bicycle as part of their commute. If this is you, please sign up below and as we collect numbers we will coordinate funding to get the scheme up and running and let you know when it is available.Express an interest
