New e-bikes and website for ‘Ontdek de e-bike’ (Discover the e-bike)
Maastricht Bereikbaar's test e-bikes have been replaced with an entirely new fleet consisting of 41 e-bikes. The ontdekdeebike.nl website has also been revamped. Everyone in South Limburg can test an e-bike during a week-long trial, starting this autumn.
You can collect the e-bike for the trial at the Cycle Center in Valkenburg. You can then use the e-bike for a week to cycle to work, do your shopping, or tour Limburg. In addition to e-bikes from the well-known brands such as Batavus, Sparta, Cortina, and Kalkhoff, the fleet has welcomed a number of new models such as speed bikes that can reach 45 km/h and are ideal for longer distances, an electric cargo bike for the whole family, and an e-cargo bike that business owners can reserve via www.maastrichtbereikbaar.nl/logistiek.
How does it work?
Visit theontdekdeebike.nlwebsite and select the e-bike you would like for a trial and check if the bike is still available. E-bikes can be collected on Thursdays from 3:00 PM at the Cycle Center in Valkenburg. After one week, you must return the e-bike on Thursday between 10:00 and 11:00 AM.
Every two weeks, more than 15,000 subscribers receive travel tips, smart mobility solutions, and stories from commuters and business owners who travel smarter in South Limburg.
The newsletter is sent in Dutch.
