Man and woman riding Beryl e-bike and e-scooter in Norwich

Top five reasons to join the ride, not the rush

There are so many benefits to commuting by e-bike or e-scooter, including some you have probably never considered before. Here’s the top five!

Keep fresh

Using electrically-assisted vehicles, you’ll arrive at work looking as fresh as the moment you left the house. There’s no need to worry about taking a change of clothes or having shower facilities at work, e-bikes and e-scooters make it easy to whizz past traffic rather than sitting in it. 


Have some fun

Lets face it, zooming along on an e-bike or an e-scooter is a lot of fun. Don’t believe us? Give it a try and you’ll see. You can better connect with your surroundings and get some much needed fresh air - something you just can’t do sitting in traffic behind the wheel. 


Save some cash

E-bikes and e-scooters are also friendly on your bank balance too. By purchasing Minute Bundles (rather than paying as your ride) you can save money compared to the cost of petrol or taxis. Norwich users can purchase 100 minutes of e-bike or e-scooter riding for just £5 (+£1.50 unlock fee), which is a lot less than it would cost to add enough fuel to a car to drive it for 100 minutes.  


It’s super convenient

You don’t need to go out of your way to enjoy an e-bike or e-scooter. In Norwich, 60% of the people living in the Beryl scheme area are just five minutes walk from one of the 95 Beryl Bays. If we’re talking numbers, that's 113,793 people in a 68sq km service area.


Clean up the air

Based on industry calculations, Beryl e-bikes and e-scooters have saved over 18 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions in Norwich since their arrivals - the equivalent of 107 flights from London to Edinburgh. You can help drive that figure up higher and have a real impact on the quality of the city’s air.
