NEWS | Don’t forget it’s free to ride a Beryl Bike this week

Grab a FREE ride on a Beryl Bike!

To celebrate this success, Beryl and Herefordshire Council are bringing riders a free week of trips across the city. Funded by a grant from the Department of Transport, all rides ending in a Beryl Bay will be free of charge from 9th to 15th September. “Hereford Free Week” will enable more residents and visitors to choose a more environmentally-friendly means of transport.

Cllr John Harrington, Cabinet Member for Infrastructure and Transport at Herefordshire Council, expects the Hereford Free Week to encourage even more people to hop on a Beryl bike for commuting or leisure rides. “We are absolutely delighted to announce a week of free cycling with Beryl Bikes,” he said.

“It has been one month since its launch, and support for the scheme has been extraordinary, with thousands of Herefordians and visitors already making use of Beryl Bikes for journeys in and across the city, helping to reduce congestion. By using grant funding from the Department for Transport we are offering a week of free rides, of up to 30 minutes, and hope to encourage even more of you to get on two wheels and enjoy being out and about on healthy, active, sustainable transport.”
