E-BIKES

Community E-Bikes

Idea: Working with support from Lochaber Environmental Group, the KCT have identified a potential community need for access to E-bikes to enable more people to explore their local environment, use active travel and enjoy the great outdoors.

 Aim: To provide a pool of accessible bikes to the local community to create opportunity for exercise, green health activity and fun for residents.

 Legacy: The project will include a shelter, tools for maintenance and bike protection to increase the longevity of the project. The KCT will consider a small charge or suggested donation for bike rental to cover continuing costs. Should there be an opportunity to rent them to visitors for a market-value cost the KCT would prefer to do this to recoup maintenance and ongoing damage costs.

 Status: Funding being sought. Community consultation in process.
